30 Seconds but effective speech by Bryan Dyson (CEO of Coca Cola)Posted: February 28, 2011
“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 it.”
How true is what I have been thinking. In life most of the time we tend to give the explanation I m doing this for a better future for my children and better future for us while loosing the present and neglecting them. By the time we are gone, they might or might not enjoy what we did for them, but they definitely would miss us with the thought like ‘he / she did everything but never enjoyed’
Life is now and enjoy it. Of course we need to work but we should always maintain the work life balance in such a way we don’t lose focus on whats more important? what will come back to us and what will not come back to us? What are we losing forever and what is the reward against the struggle? etc.
This is a short post to be continued in the future! basically getting back to postaweek2011 back in track 🙂
