Too Much Multi-Tasking; Too many Balls to Juggle

Priorities of Life
Most of us are running the rat race and are not even aware that we would waste entire life in this race and by the time we will realize, it would be too late. Sometimes I jokingly say, “The time when slow and steady won the race has gone. Today fast and steady wins the race. But post-race he is a burn out”
God may not always come exactly when we call Him.....but He is always on time....Sometimes we are in hurry.

Often big and multinational companies extract the best out of our youth, one can become a CEO at 32 (even earlier), afford to retire at 40 and after that one has nothing left. The family and friends are emotionally disconnected (because one had no time for them); the health is in poor shape and the spirit is lost due to all this. After all the candle which lights bright, lights shorter.
Bryan Dyson, Former CEO of Cocacola says, “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 are 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 scuffled, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.”
So work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest.
Being a workaholic is also an addiction and for that there is no ‘Workaholics Anonymous’.
