President's Message Brett
February 2019
By
Brett Thomas- IAHU President 

February feels good, doesn’t it? Before the Affordable Care Act, I despised February. It was easily my least favorite month of the year. It’s cold, the holidays are history, and I’d spend the first half of the month stressed about what to do for Valentine’s Day. But now, I love February. To me, it’s the first month of true relief. January is deceiving because - while AEP’s, OEP’s and fourth quarter renewals are behind us - the first month of the year brings a litany of unexpected problems: missing ID cards, billing mishaps, confusion about new plans benefits, and clients who simply missed the boat - to name a few. But, oh sweet February! The dust has finally settled. So, if you’re one who tends to move from busy to busier, my message for this month is to take some time to relish the reprieve.

You’ve likely heard the following story, but it bears repeating:

Once upon a time a psychology professor walked around on a stage while teaching stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the typical ‘glass half empty or glass half full’ question. Instead, with a smile on her face, the professor asked, ‘How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?’


Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds.


She replied, ‘From my perspective, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter.  It all depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light. If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little. If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.’


As the class shook their heads in agreement, she continued, ‘Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little. Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed - incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.

We’ve been running at a break-neck pace for the past 4 or 5 months. February is a good time to put  down the glass.


Thank you,
Brett Thomas
President, Idaho Association of Health Underwriters 2018-2019
