How well do you achieve a work-life balance:

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some 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, former vice chairman and COO of Coca-Cola.

Achieving a work-life balance can be challenging, but is possible:

“Take care of yourself: When you don’t sleep, eat crap, don’t exercise, and are living off adrenaline for too long, your performance suffers. Your decisions suffer. Your company suffers. Love those close to you: Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationship is.”

~ Ev Williams

Prioritising also helps:

“Choose where to focus your energies and learn how to say ‘no’ to anything non-essential. Then prioritise, prioritise, prioritise. And remember that your family and relationships are always priorities.”

~ Sarah Grant

“Life is all about priorities. Year after year, day after day, and even minute after minute you have to embrace what is more important and essential for you and not look back. When others don’t understand or admonish you for your choices don’t give it any energy because they are telling you that their wants are more significant than yours.”

~ Carl Henegan, Darkness Left Undone
