Check out this quote (and link to longer speech) from Brian Dyson, former CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises. He was a very successful AND wise man. Next time someone tells you you can’t be successful in work and balanced and happy in life, tell them to read this:)
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 (b. 1935) CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises
