observations from 24
I've been watching 24 on NetFlix. I noticed some patterns, translating into life lessons:
- Work-Life Balance
Working 24 hours straight means there aren't enough of the right resources on your project.
- Know When It's Time To Stop
After you've been kidnapped once, it's time to reevaluate your life choices. Being kidnapped repeatedly in a 24 hour period is a sign of a much bigger problem.
- It's Important to Have the Support of Your Boss
If you have to go rogue at work, it's time to get a new job.
- Take Care of Your Health...
At the first sign chest pain, stop and get treatment.
- ...Including Your Mental Health
If you aren't willing to call 911 in an emergency because you "don't trust the authorities," that's a sign of a problem.
- Protect Those You Care About
It's time to take a sick day when your child gets kidnapped.
