A DORSET IT manager working for HSBC has vowed to spend less time on Zoom after suffering a heart attack.

In a now-viral post on social media site LinkedIn, Jonathan Frostick, 45, said the first thought that flashed through his head as he began to suffer intense pressure in his chest was "I needed to meet with my manager tomorrow, this isn't convenient".

He thought "how do I secure funding" for a work project, "I haven't updated my will", and last "I hope my wife doesn't find me dead".

Bournemouth Echo: Mr Frostick's LinkedIn postMr Frostick's LinkedIn post

Mr Frostick, from Bournemouth, was working from home at the time, earlier this month, and fortunately was able to get the attention of his wife, who called the ambulance service.

Updating his LinkedIn page, apparently from hospital, Mr Frostick said he had made several decisions as a result of his experience.

"I'm not spending all day on Zoom anymore.

"I'm restructuring my approach to work.

"I'm really not going to be putting up with any **** at work ever again - life literally is too short.

"I'm losing 15kg.

"I want every day to count for something at work else I'm changing my role.

"I want to spend more time with my family."

The post has been widely spread particularly in the business and financial press, attracting sympathy and concern over the high pressure working lives of many in the industry.

Mr Frostick said he took responsibility for his work-life balance, and told finance news site Bloomberg he sometimes worked 12 hour days and weekends as well.

The initial post had more than 200,000 reactions.
