“Don’t Eat Your Seed Wheat”
In times of crisis and upheaval, it is always good to look at what you can control compared to what you cannot. It pays to look at the fundamentals again to set the foundations of your life as secure as possible.

These principles are easy to implement and easy to forget, so a good reminder, is always worthwhile. Like a drifting boat, it is incredible how far you can travel when you're not paying attention. So here we go.
