Part of my occupation is to assist people with video conferences. Today, I met with Dr Shaid Yaman, who was expecting a video conference call from Austria. The call ended up not taking place, probably due to incompatible equipment. The 40 minutes we spent waiting for the call were not wasted, as he told me about his passion for fishing, and how he tries to teach Masters of Business students and company CEOs the value of patience. A nicely Zen experience for an early Tuesday morning.
