Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. Dear Sue, more & more of my team are working from home and I feel that as a result I am getting lumbered with fielding more enquiries and sorting out more problems in the office. Communicating with them is also proving more time consuming. I can't help feeling resentful, especially as my workload is already very heavy. What should I do? I find balancing my 2 kids with my work commitments hectic, stressful and awful. Emma Morris from Ipswich

Discuss mental wellbeing, mental health, balance and being present – talk about meditation, exercise, laughter and simple relaxation

A number of years ago, Bryan Dyson, then the President and CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises, delivered a commencement speech at Georgia Tech. In it, he discussed the difference between glass and rubber balls. His insight is as valuable today as it was then.

“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.”

I hope this helps,

Sue
