Quote of The Day

"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling 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."
- Brian Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola Enterprises from 1959-1994

Can't agree with him more. Even if the ball for work is made of glass, you can afford to lose it (for a while maybe) but if you lose the other four, I can't even imagine...
