COMPUTER VIRUS THREATENS MY HOME BUSINESS!
©Lee Wise 2002

A deadly virus threatens my home.
A computer related virus.

I have located the virus and even discovered
its name.

WHAT’S MY NAME?

The name is … Lee.

Several code names identify the nature of
this in house killer. You may recognize a
one or two of them.

*Preoccupation
*Forgetfulness
*Out of balance
*Insensitivity
*Self-centered
*Misplaced priorities
*Overwork
*Clueless

A DARK SIDE

Yes, I enjoy my part-time business.
I appreciate being able to work at home.

I love working in my own house. On my own
computer. In my own way.

Who wouldn’t?

But…

Love for my at home business can have a dark
side: forgetting my business at home!

PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE

There is a bright side to this. Really!
And the bright side is me.

I have the power to practice preventative
medicine. I’ll prescribe just two for
starters. You can expand my thoughts with
your own list.

LISTEN AND RESPOND

Miracle of miracles: my chair turns around.
In a moment’s time I can turn that creative
masterpiece around and do something special.

Face my family member!

Imagine that — I can turn “screen time” into
“I love you time” as quick as I can access that
oh-so-very-important web page!

Then I can listen and respond. Really hear.
Really listen. And really respond.

Just as if cared. Really.

Yeah, I know it’s overkill on “really” but
I am trying to make a point: because I don’t
always find myself in the winner’s seat on
this one.

I have failed. But I keep on trying. I
keep on working at it!

FLOWERS

Flowers? What on earth do flowers have to do
with anything?

Plenty.

My girls love flowers. I have all girls. I
married one, married two off, and have one
still living at home that I expect to marry
off!

They all LOVE flowers.

So I buy them flowers. I may not be able to
buy a bouquet of roses for sixty dollars.
But I can get a great spring arrangement for
around ten bucks.

A cheap price to pay for a way to say “I love
you!” from a man who has a home business.

YOU’RE SPECIAL TO ME

Flowers, notes, lunches, bummin’ together,
making time to do what *they* enjoy, taking
in a movie, or any number of other “touches”
mean something to our family members.

It means they are special to us.

The computer is nice. Working at home is nice.
Creatively doing what I enjoy is nice.

Nice, yes. But more valuable than my family?

Never.

SOMETHING OLD BUT ALWAYS NEW

I can listen and respond.
We call this …

Quality Communication

I can say “You are special” many ways.
We call this …

Taking Time To Care

ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM

Is yours on?
Is mine?

We all have one.
It goes by the name of “my heart.”

It’s the most important business at
home tool we own!
