Every Human has a Role to Play ..

.. in keeping COVID-19 at bay.

How we behave now that we’re opening businesses and stores matters. If we don’t treat the environment as hazardous .. noting that we are part of the environment, we run the risk of spreading the virus to those we love.

Masks help:

  • Masks are not a sign of weakness .. they’re a sign of love.
  • Masks are not a political statement .. the virus does not play politics.
  • Masks do not demonstrate disloyalty .. the virus is only loyal to the spread of itself.

Skipping the mask:

  • Is not a sign of strength .. tough guys (and gals) have contracted and spread the virus.
  • Is not a sign of intelligence .. smart guys (and gals), regardless of their rationale have contracted and spread the virus.
  • It is not a sign of beauty or pride .. you look fabulous! Decorate your mask!

Skipping the mask should not be rationalized by ‘inevitability of death statements’ .. you know the ones: “I might get hit by a bus tomorrow .. “.

Right. You might .. but you won’t take others you love with you.

As of 1754, May 27th 2020, the US death toll surpassed 100,000 from COVID-19 .. in under four months.

How many of those deaths might you have caused, directly or indirectly? Granted, inadvertently and without malice ..

.. you can change that today.

Respect the Mask” and respect each other. Wear a mask.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
