The virus called procrastination.

The virus called procrastination.

 Show Interest
I used to work in Denmark and before returning to the UK my colleagues organised a leaving do for me, but one of my technicians, Ole Eriksen, couldn't attend. 

Instead he wrote me a very flattering letter with the heading, "Fordi jeg ikke fik det sagt" (loosely translated as "because I didn't get to say it personally"). 

The leaving do was great and my focus switched to my new role in the UK. 

Two months later I thought, "I must call Ole and thank him for his letter." 

Eventually, 6 months after leaving Denmark, I called him and the person who answered said, "Oh, didn't you know, Ole died of leukemia three weeks ago!" 

A salutary lesson that I shall never forget.
