Keep your head above the water, otter

Keep your head above the water, otter

Once upon a time, a little otter decided that playing while working, or working and playing is fun and healthy.

Otters are born swimmers, and they know that to survive they must keep swimming. They eat, rest, and groom themselves in the water. They must swim all the time. But they also love to play and wrestle in the water. You would see them chase their tails and participate in various fun games. Otters are also very curious and like to investigate new things. This is all applicable to people too.

We must work to survive, but we must also play and have fun. We must stay curious and learn new things because this is our essence. This is how we stay happy and healthy. Because of our curiosity, and desire to develop and evolve, humanity is where it is in science and technology today. Because progress is a product of our curiosity and of our acting upon it.

Yet, we can be active and focused only when we are well rested and happy. And this beautiful thing happens when we have a nice work and play balance. We should really not define it as work and life balance. Because do we first work and then live? Is this really the reality we want to inhabit?

Should we dive into our work until we can’t breathe and then, at our last breath, come up for air? This is not what otters do. Why should we? We, the most intelligent species on this planet, why do we live lifes out of balance? Do we really want to drown in work and forget to play, to rest, to groom ourselves?

Keep your head above the water otter!

The best way to get what we need is by striking the right balance between rest and productivity. Rest could mean jogging, hiking, biking or simply resting at home. But it is about having time away from every day work routine. This is the only way to retain our focus and keep creativity alive. It is the only way to keep our relationships healthy and happy because we are social animals and we need each other.

The last week of the year is this special time we are supposed to devote to family and friends, but instead many use the days off to just rest. And as good as this might be, it is also sad because it represents the unhealthy environment we inhabit. The world has gone mad. It is a notion millions of people around the world feel and share.

People have become overworked and over-stressed. Not to mention that many are underpaid. In the logistics industry, for instance, the people who spend the least of time with their families are the truck drivers, and they are in many ways underpaid. Every industry has been affected by how the biggest economies in the world decide to do business. By how the politicians decide to do business. But we are not talking politics here. Very few politicians, in very few countries, care to help people to find a healthy balance and achieve happier lives.  So, it is up to us to find a way. This holiday season, take the time to think about that.

The sun is shining, look at it more often.

Think about all the things you can do in 2018 that can bring you closer to a work and play balance, work and rest balance, work and smile balance. You can take that construction “work and,” and put whatever you want after it. Just please don’t think about it in terms of “work and life” balance. This sounds scary. It signifies that we don’t live while we work, but then we work most of our waking time. How monstrous would that be. Follow the example of the otters. Keep your head above the water most of the time. Work and play most of the time. Think about that these last days of the year.

Marry Christmas and A Happy New Year 2018!

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
