Going too fast from point A to point B?

Living life in the fast lane?
Or do you take your time?
Making frequent stops and sometime forgetting where you were heading to begin with?

We all know people from both camps.

Some are go-getters; hard workers. So much so that sometime their personal life suffers.
Others are the opposite.
Work? Yes, as soon as they are done playing one more computer game.
After all they are almost at level 30.

The first group — those who travel through life in the fast lane:

They do know the best is to be somewhere in the middle.
But when they hear about living a balanced life, they’ll counteract with,
“Is that even possible in today’s world?”
These are the same people who keep saying “yes” and add more commitments to their over-booked schedule.

Living a balanced life is not always possible, of course.

There will be times when you don’t have much of a choice. You have to work long hours.
And get that project finished.
But as soon as it’s done take time to recharge. IT’S IMPORTANT.

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air.
You name them — 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 other four balls — family, health, friends, and spirit — are made of glass.
If you drop one of these,
they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered.
They will never be the same.
You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”
Brian Dyson, former vice chairman and COO of Coca-Cola

We’ll talk next week about the second group — those who travel life leisurely.
Is it because of hardly any planning and goal-setting?
Or is it because they like it that way?
Or another reason altogether?

Sharing this site with your friends is much appreciated.
Thanks for visiting.

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
