*GROAN*…*COUGH COUGH*….PHLEGM EVERYWHERE, KLEENEX TISSUES, RAGING MIGRANE – boy oh boy, I don’t feel well. I’ve got a bad case of Man-Flu.
As a result, my usual 19 hour days involving multiple business content creation, all day appointments, exercise and time with the family were all cut short. I wasn’t in hospital nor was y’know….. I was ill but this flu took a detrimental effect to my lifestyle. It hit me hard. I felt so wussy and helpless. Thank heavens the wife gave me some attention and did her good work. What was worse was I did not want to come near my daughter as I didn’t want her to catch my flu.
Have you ever thought about this? Rather have you anticipated this? When you’re ill or when something in life dramatically interferes with your equilibrium it disrupts that harmony of a routine. Have you made measures to protect your lifestyle?
If you’re an employee and you take a week off to recover from your illness etc.. is there a system in place so that your colleagues can cover you for that backed up workload? Or if you’re a contractor, say an electrician who is only paid for his/her time. If you are sick or incapacitated, how will your income come in to take care of your family, your business and expenses?
I’m proud to say that at my age I’ve been able to diversify and spread my sources of income flow so that if anything would happen to me, then at least there would be another stream of cash flow that is there to take care of my family.
TIME TO THINK!!!
Folks, this is reality. You have to ANTICIPATE these things. Safeguard your well-being and your entire lifestyle by getting health checks, eat well, stay fit, having the appropriate insurance policies in (remember to read the fine print – they’re very tricky buggers), sick leave and adding more income flows.
Look after yourself.
I’m gonna get bigger faster stronger after I get out of bed…hey wait…let me blow my nose.
