Pragmatic Technologies for Life and Business Success®
This week’s reflection point: Two weeks ago, while attending the Growth Circle, an extraordinary developmental experience with Alan Weiss and nine of my trusted global colleagues in Naples, Florida, I received an anxious call from my niece in Israel. She reported that my father had just suffered a brain aneurysm, was in a coma and was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.
I boarded a plane to Israel and 26 hours later I arrived to his nursing home to see him and comfort him. I just returned from my rushed visit with him and my family and here a few of my reflections that may resonate with you as well:
I am glad to report that my dad is stable and is out of the coma. Sadly, he has lost a lot of his cognitive and physical abilities. Needless to say, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to spend time with him, valuable time, that we often forget to create unless an emergency arises.
This week’s tip: Make time for the most important things in life, especially family and friends; so you don’t end up wishing you had.
