“Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends, and integrity. And you’re keeping all of them in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls…are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.” James Patterson
The oldest known recording of juggling is painted on the wall of an Egyptian tomb. For centuries juggling served as an art form with an entertainment value directly tied to the complexity of the juggler’s skill in keeping objects whirling through the air in continuous motion. In life, however, trying to keep several balls in the air can be anything but amusing. Today, the dexterity with which you can shuffle obligations, prioritize responsibilities and remain flexible to changing circumstances is vital. You could be making an important decision related to changes in your work or environment. If you manage to successfully manipulate the inconstant, the reward may be an unexpected stroke of good fortune.
In some area of life, you’re likely to find yourself spread just a little too thin and running for cover as a result. Could be the covers of your bed and hiding out from situations you don’t want to deal with.
