Life is a juggling game

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Life is a juggling game according to Brian Dyson, CEO of the Coca Cola Enterprises. It requires five balls. He calls them: work, family, health, friends, and spirit. In order to be successful in life, you must keep all five balls in the air. You will find that work is a rubber ball. If you accidentally 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 them, it will instantly get scuffed, nicked, or even shattered. Become a skilled juggler, and you will lead a happy, balanced, and successful life.
