Keeping a proper perspective

I wish some bright startup would come up with a cure for jet lag. Or an established pharmaceutical giant for that matter. I don’t really care which. I’d be more than happy to pay a premium for one. The older you get, the tougher it is to adjust to major changes in time zones no matter how carefully you prepare for it. Fremont isn’t at its best at four o’clock in the morning…

A first world problem, I know, so I’m not complaining too much. The benefits of air travel far outweigh the minor annoyances you experience with jet lag and the occasional long lines at immigration and security. It’s important to keep things in proper perspective and remain calm and collected even when your nerves and temper are stretched by unexpected hassles and delays.

The lesson for today is over. Fremont looks much better under clear blue skies and the air is cool and dry compared to the heat and humidity of Taipei. It all looks set to be an interesting week here.
