Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air … work, family, health, friends, and spirit. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball … but the other four balls are made of glass – Brian Dyson (former vice chaiman of Coca-Cola).
What does it imply?
Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls – family, health, friends and integrity are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered – Gary Keller (founder of Keller Williams)
If I tell you that I never get busy, upset and depressed from time to time, I tell a lie. Now I know “When to stop” and a man should never neglect his family for business. Please find yourself among nature once or twice a week to untie and rejuvenate your life. So please seek not to be at CEO desk but CEO of your life as “No one on his deathbed ever said I wish I had spent more time at the office – Paul Tsongas (politician)”
