Well, what we have been trying to avoid for two years, happened.
A few weeks ago as of this writing, I tested positive for COVID-19. After multiple boosters and what we believe now is a milder strain, I was way lucky. Symptoms were mild, with some coughing, a sore throat and a lot of tiredness, but nothing to get scared about.
And even though it wasn’t anything serious in my case, it certainly made me slow down and contemplate life a bit.
When your down on your health (and if you’re lucky that is not serious), you keep finding things that you cannot do. Like when there is no Internet, or there is no power. Your mind keeps racing, going to places and projects you want to do, just when you remember that you can’t.
My hearth goes out to anyone suffering from a serious illness. Health is the most valuable resource we have, is the one that allows us to do anything else.
This is why an organization’s health is so important as well. A healthy organization is necessary to delight customers, and to be able to compete effectively in the market.
