Life Balls

Read to me :


Everyone of us need to juggle many things in life : work, family, health, friends, and money. Keeping all the balls in the air all the time can be difficult because you and me only got 2 hands. Everyday we only get 24 hours. On bad days, 24 hours seems to be too long. On good days, these 24 hours is too short for us. So how do you juggle the balls in your life correctly?

 If you examine the balls, you will notice some of the balls are make of rubber and others are make of glass.

Balls of family and health are make of glass. If you drop them, they are broken. Always seek to keep these glass balls in the air all the time, whether you have time or not, whether you like it or not.

Other balls like work are make of rubber. You loose your job, you can always find another one. You loose your friend, you can find another one.  You loose some money, you can also earn it back. These rubber balls can bounced back when you drop them.

In my opinion, the priorities in life should be like this.

  • Health
  • Family
  • Money

Health comes first. You need to do something everyday to maintain or improve your health. Without health, you can achieve nothing in life. Without health, you cannot take care of your loved ones. That’s why health is so important.

Family comes next. If you think that family is no good, perhaps you never had any major setbacks in your life. When you have work problems or major health problems, you will find that a family is where you can fall back on. A family is also someone whom you can share your happiness with. Without someone to share your joy with, your happiness is not happy at all.

Money comes next but not the last. Other balls like friends will come after money. Money is needed to maintain the first two priorities : health and family.

I feel that by maintaining the priorities in this order, you will get the most benefit out of life. If you are unhappy about your life, look at how you prioritize your balls in life or which are the balls that are missing in your life.
