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. 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 it.”

Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest.

Value has a value only if its values is valued.

    So very true! I think most of us ‘know’ it but fail to ‘implement’ it in life…

    I would like to understand what is meant by “Spirit” since if that is a reference to God and breaks when dropped then it is made of human hands or false belief. The Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is eternal, the same yesterday, today, and forever and with more power and resiliency than imaginable. Outside of that, the quote has some quality of life value.

    A thought provoking feel which agitates both brain and mind. LIFE what l have experienced is Learning Is For Ever. Certainly, we may b aware of this fact,nonetheless needs realization to keep juggling balls which are fragile.
