I learned how to juggle when I was in high school. My brother’s girlfriend was over one New Year’s Eve and while waiting for the ball to drop she taught me the art of keeping three balls in the air at once. I spent the next few hours perfecting my hand eye coordination and becoming talented enough to amuse my friends but not good enough to join the circus. What I didn’t realize that evening was how invaluable learning to juggle would be. Today, like all of us, I use my juggling skills to juggle work, play, family, friends and writing.

Money is an important part of the society we live in today. We must have it to live a normal and comfortable life. But imagine living in a society where everyone discovered their right livelihood – their true passion. Naturally if we love something we do it well.

Imagine going into any business and the person behind the counte......
