We are SUPERB jugglers!

Alhamdulillah. I'm a juggler and striving very hard to be a GREAT one. Many years ago, a friend shared this over the mail. It got me thinking and the aspiration to have a balanced life kicked in! But only now, its beginning to balance and taking shape. Yup, I took a while, but some very hard decisions (with myself) need to be made.  Three important ones are...

  • firstly, putting my priorities right, and sticking to it!
  • next, having the courage to say NO, and 
  • thirdly, let them talk. I know myself better...heheheh

azween just nak share .... "The 5 balls in life...."

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them Work - Family - Health - Friends - Spirit, and you are keeping them all 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. This was written by Brian G. Dyson the CEO of Coca-Cola (from 1988 until 1994). 

Slowly but surely...there's more to life than just work. But its troublesome, when you just love the work, passion for it, love the working environment, look forward to being with the positive spirited among your office mates, colleagues and leaders... hence, the more reason to balance the five balls in life... Just try it out, peeps!
