Former CEO of Coca-Cola: Of the five balls you juggle in life, you can drop only one.


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’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 four others – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be scuffed, nicked, damaged, even shattered. And it will never be the same.

Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give proper time to your family and friends, and take a decent rest.

Value has a value only if its value is valued.

Mr. Brian G. Dyson was the chief executive officer (CEO) of Coca-Cola Company from 1986 to 1991.
