Life is an echo – you get what you give.

Life's very interesting.

I'm not quite sure how to feel when my staff told me that she was leaving the organization. She was very happy, but a competitor had baited her with one more thing that we couldn't offer, and she took the bait because "she couldn't afford to be alone and isolated anymore."

I was sad, but I believed that if someone wants to go, I wouldn't stop them unless I had a good reason.

This time, I didn't.

We prayed for her, sent her our blessings and hopes, and wished her all the best, we even had a farewell lunch for her too. Interestingly, just about a week before her last day with us, as we were talking, she shared that one of her new colleagues at her next workplace had tendered his resignation - he was poached over to *gasp* a new clinic that could offer him something that his current workplace couldn't. His current boss was shocked upon hearing that he had tendered his resignation.

Oh well, if you can poach mine, why won't or can't others poach yours? You get what you give.

In that instance, I felt in my heart that God is my vengeance, and He has delivered. I had wished for more, but I'm letting go - life goes on and things gets better as we get better. I don't wish to participate in the poaching game, I'd rather grow the company practice organically. Of course, it's not only the poacher - the poachee must want to bite too.

Have you ever had a similar incident happening in your life?
