Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them: work, family, health, friends and soul - and you are keeping all of these in the air. You will soon learn that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls: family, health, friends and soul are made of glass.
