Really sick – as in I have a cold for perhaps the first time in 2-3 years (not bad with 2 kids in the house)
and like most guys – I don’t do well sick – give me pain, but leave off the misery of congestion and poor sleep.
And it reminded me this morning that when you are sick you realize how much you take health for granted – and how when times are good – you just coast along and assume they will always be that way.
And it got back to a conversation I had with a friend over dinner Wednesday night – when things are bad and there is seemingly no way out – it is very hard to motivate people to do their best work – as there may be no real light at the end of the tunnel (or another train coming at you). It is when things are at their best when you need to show discipline in your business. Discipline in cash burn, in hiring, in your work – because you never know when you will wake up one morning with that sore throat.
