There are 2 occasions when people call in sick
When they really are
And when they are not, but wish they were

Look around you
All the successful people
The ones whom you want to be
As rich, as famous, as inspirational, as enigmatic

And then ask them – how many times did you call in sick?

Tendulkar took care of himself all these years
So does Nadal
And all the successful people around you
They don’t call in sick
Definitely not when they are not
They don’t ever have to

Never work for something where you have to run away from it every now and then.
