Look After Yourself!

I take this opportunity to remind people to look after their number one asset, their health. Money is one thing but without good health you are not going to enjoy a single penny of your wealth. For the past week I have been away from my desk suffering from eye strain. I am currently typing this with a wireless keyboard, well away from the screen.

When you spend all of your working life and a lot of your recreational time in front of a screen then looking after your eyes is a prime concern. I am booked in for an eye test on Wednesday. Hopefully, it will be for no more than some reading glasses and nothing worse, such as glaucoma.

Without sight I should think my life would be pretty much over. Every penny I have ever earned has required sight. I can't imagine typing another word if I lost my vision. There is speech recognition software and transcription services but at the age of 50, I am an old dog. I must look after my eyes until I breathe my last and so should you. Take nothing for granted.

I apologise if there are any typos but I can't see the screen clearly at this distance. Also, apologies to readers of my book contacting me for clarifications. I will be away from my screen for sometime and unable to reply.


  1. Hey Jim, Look after look yourself man, thanks for all your help in the past and looking forward to having you back.

  2. Thanks for the kind words.

    I'm taking some time off whilst waiting for some glasses and an appointment with a specialist.

    I will then get back to work on providing tools and knowledge.
