Life is all about balance and I think it's easy for work to become the priority over everything else in people's lives. The problem with this being that if you don't look after and be kind to yourself, work will suffer.
Brian G.Dyson's (President and CEO of Coca Cola) speech from 1996 is still so relevant even now and a stark reminder of what can happen if you don't get your work/life balance right.
“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 it. Work efficiently during office hours and leave on time. Give the required time to your family, friends and have proper rest. Value has a value only if its value is valued.”
