Do you spend enough time cultivating your personal relationships? Or does ‘life’ get in the way?
When a zebra is hunted on the Savannah, its meat is staked in an order of priority. First, the lions, the leopards and the cheetahs get their shares. Then the hyenas totter in for their pounds of flesh. Once the hyenas are done, the vultures step in. In the end, if something is leftover, the jackals come in to salvage it.
The demands on our time are also lined up on a pecking order. Our time is limited and is mostly devoted to our careers, entertainment portals and personal projects. Our personal relationships, which are the most important for our long-term health and well-being, are often relegated to the lowest rung in our ladder of priorities.
For our personal relationships to thrive, we must stop treating them like scavengers.
