…work is a rubber ball

As I’m starting to write about emotional resilience, Dr. Robi mentioned the other night about Gary Keller’s book, The One Thing. I’ve read it quite recently and the key take away for me, which I cant wait to share today is the 5 areas or he calls it the 5 balls critical in our lives that we shouldn’t ignore.

The 5 balls are family, health, friends, integrity and work.

Work, ladies and gentlemen, is made of rubber. It’s a rubber ball. If we drop it, it will bounce back. The other four however, are made of glass. Once we drop one of these, it will be irrevocably damaged, scratched or even shattered.

A fundamental truth that comes up time and again in my life, in our lives. Something we shouldn’t turn a blind-eye on. I hope you know what matters most in yours.
