You treat a heart attack differently than you treat high blood pressure. From what I’ve observed in our jobs, many people treat most things like heart attacks. Everything is urgent and needs to be tended to immediately.
Doing bypass on a heart attack patient is expensive, messy, and painful, but offers quick results.
Treating someone with high blood pressure takes vision, dedication, and consistency, which may take longer but offers better overall health so hopefully you avoid a heart attack. It’s an ongoing process, not a one time fix.
As is with our bodies, the same could be said for our jobs that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
