Today I got a call from Ennie when I was in a meeting that was winding down… We were in the “we’re all checking our email after meeting for three hours” phase.
“It’s really important.”
My first thought when I heard that is the notion that someone has died.
It quickly turned out that while it’s not that someone died, but that it was important. (No one even got sick FYI)
It puts things into perspective. When something is important, just compare it to things that are really important.
While it’s not all fun, things are still fine.
And no one is dead.
