Juggling life

One of the questions people ask yours truly the most is how do I juggle my work schedule with my personal life.

I always reply that there’s no separation between work and play – it’s all living. My daughter-in-law Isabella made a similar point beautifully by quoting Brian Dyson,  former CEO of Coca Cola.

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends and spirit … and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”

Looks like my son married someone who has her values right. Love this quote!
