I got a call yesterday from a client. The business owner & his wife were at the gym on Friday night - joined a few months ago to lose some left over Christmas cheer & get healthy.
Anyway, they were just walking along on the treadmill when she collapsed. Was on life support for a short while but didn't make it. She was not much older than me - around 37 I think.
Husband & 2 daughters left. It was all so sudden, no prior conditions or indications.
Makes you stop & think.
Go hug those you love, make the most of the time you have with each other. Put away the computer for a bit and spend some quality time together - there will always be email, there will always be blog posts, there will always be "things" to work on.
You may not always have those you love around you and you never know when they'll be done forever so make the most of the time you do have.
guess it's time I got back to blogging. I've been getting hassled by numerous bodies about my silence here and it has been suggested that I pull my socks up and hit the keyboard.
I've been spending the last few months focussing on my business and so haven't really had the time...even for a quick blog.
Add to that the fact that I've had several good ideas for posts but these have been when I'm away from any way of noting things down - in the shower, driving, camping in the middle of the outback. I then get busy or simply forget and...well...there goes another idea...
Anyway, I promise to get back here more often now. Having just returned from SMB Nation in Seattle my head is still buzzing and we've got lots of changes going on here at the office which might be of interest too.
Stay tuned - more to come...
