Quotes On Work-Life Balance


#1
Ev Williams, co-founder of Twitter

“Take care of yourself: When you don’t sleep, eat crap, don’t exercise, and are living off adrenaline for too long, your performance suffers. Your decisions suffer. Your company suffers. Love those close to you: Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationship is.” 

This touched me deeply. Currently, I am not sleeping well. I am not eating well. I am not even exercising. Oh Lord. This is not the life. 


#2
Michelle Obama, former First Lady of the United States

“Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.”


I hear it again. Yes, ma'm! "Amaka, take care of your self. Make yourself a priority" *talks to the mirror*


#3
Brian Dyson, former vice chairman and COO of Coca-Cola

“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.”


Hmm! Thank you sir.  My family, my health, my friends and my Spirit are what needs my attention the most (not work, not money) OK.


#4
Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook 

“I spend most of my time thinking about how to connect the world and serve our community better, but a lot of that time isn’t in our office or meeting with people or doing what you’d call real work. I take a lot of time just to read and think about things by myself.”


Reading. Yes oh. No matter how stressful the day had been. I MUST read before I go to bed.


#5
Steve Blank, author

“When you’re gone would you rather have your gravestone say, ‘He never missed a meeting.’ Or one that said, ‘He was a great father.”


#6
Hillary Clinton, Former United Secretary of states

“Don't confuse having a career with having a life.”

#7
Daddy E. A Adeboye, General Overseer of RCCG


"God is not my top priority, He is my priority."

So much wisdom in so little words.

Let's embrace work-life balance, and give time and attention to all the things that really matter in our lives.
