Everyone gets sick, it’s the ones who keep going that succeed. Yes, if you are contagious or seriously ill that is the time to stay home but just because you are not physically at work does not mean you cannot be there mentally. Think of ways that you can continue to excel while you are home. Try and catch up on things that you can do in your bed, use your time wisely.
If you want to be a winner-don’t stop, not even for sickness.
