Fwd: Ballgame

Subject:  ballgame

In a university commencement address several years ago,  Brian Dyso
>>  CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises, spoke of the relation of work to one's
>> other
>>  commitments:
>>  "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
>>  one of these they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged
>>  even shattered. They will never be the same.  You must understand that
>> and
>>  strive for balance in your life.
>>  How?
>>  Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.  It is
>>  because we are different that each of us is special. Don't set your
>> by
>>  what other people deem important.  Only you know  what is best for you.
>>  Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart.  Cling to
>>  them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
>>  Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or
>>  for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the
>>  days of your life.
>>  Don't give up when you still have something to give.  Nothing is
>>  really over until the moment you stop trying.
>>  Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect.  It is this
>>  fragile thread that binds us to each together.
>>  Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we
>>  learn how to be brave.
>>  Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find.
>>  The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose
>>  is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it
>>  wings.
>>  Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've
>>  been, but also where you are going.
>>  Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel
>>  appreciated.
>>  Don't be afraid to learn.  Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can
>>  always carry easily.
>>  Don't use time or words carelessly.  Neither can be retrieved.  Life
>>  is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
>>  Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery and Today is a gift:
>>  that's  why we call it - The Present."
