Life Lessons

I'm sure, like me, you receive many jokes, stories, etc. via email. Every once in a while, one comes along that really makes you think, or you say to yourself  "yeah, that is SO true..." I was going back through some old emails today, deleting, and came across this one sent to me by my cousin Ron. It falls into the "So true" category, so I thought I'd share it with you.
It was labelled as the shortest speech by a CEO - 30 second speech by Bryan Dyson,  former CEO of Coca Cola:

"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. They are 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.
Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends  and have proper rest.

Sometimes we need a little reminder of what's really important.....

Have a great day!

Great words and a good reminder. Thanks for sharing this one. It must have missed my sister who is always sending me these. :)
