Me first?

I was on a plane traveling and had an interesting observation. When you are on a plane, they always tell you to put your mask on first before helping others put theirs on. How come in life we tend to put others first except on an airplane? The notion of taking care of yourself first so you can be prepared, healthy and ready to help others is, or at least should be, words to live by everyday. I know that when I sleep better, exercise and give myself a little time to be, I can be a better parent, partner, and leader to my company and clients. That’s not to say that we should all be selfish and self-focused, but a little self care goes a long way.
