Juggling with priorities

25 Aug

I have recently recalled a conversation I had with my German boss in Grameen Creative Lab in Colombia. He gave me a very powerful insight, which he himself heard from his previous boss, about priorities in life, which I would like to share with you.

We are often juggling with many balls at the same time. Some of them, such as our professional life, are made of rubber and bounce back if we drop them. But other ones, such as our relationships and health, are made of glass and can shatter into many small pieces if we let them fall on the ground.

I would also add our own pride amongst the rubber ones.

I guess it is more easily said than done, but next time you are juggling with your priorities again, be careful not to drop the fragile glass balls.
