There are two things I know for sure and neither has anything to do with Carole Baskin or her husband. I know for sure that this situation we’re dealing with is going to end and that the world is never going to be the same when it does.
With that said, what’s your next move? It would seem to me that now is the time to figure that out.
How This Ends
Within the next month, stay at home orders are going to start to be lifted across the country and we’re going to start the long and grueling process of rebuilding our society and economy. It’s not going to be long before restaurants are full and baseball is back on TV. We’re flattening the curve of this dreaded virus and as a country, we’re on our way back to seeing one another again. But things are going to be different.
We Won’t Be The Same
From 30,000 feet, the entire country is going to feel normal again very soon but on the ground, we’re going quickly realize that there is no such thing as normal anymore. Mark my words, work from here on out is going to shift, and it’s going to be different. Working from home is going to be much more common. Virtual learning is going to become the norm for a lot of people, and some people aren’t going to get called back to their jobs and that’s a tough reality to face.
Our economy has been decimated by the necessary actions our governments have taken. We’ve saved lives but it’s come at an extreme and worthy cost. Just like we saw in 2009 and 2010, companies are going to learn to do more with less and become leaner to compensate. This leaves us with a glaring question.
If you don’t have a solid answer to that question, the time to find one is definitely now. The time to act on that idea that’s been rolling around in our heads is now. The time to launch the new website, a new business or new project is now. The time to plan what our next steps must be to survive is now.
Last week, I wrote a post about staying sane through all of this. Key number 4 was finding a project to give our attention to because idle hands are the devil’s workshop. If you’ve not yet found one, might I suggest you make planning and plotting what your next move is going to be when this is all over your top priority? Is there a more important or better use of your time while you’re cooped up and alone?
There are two things I know for sure. 1. This is going to end. 2. The world is never going to be the same.
If we’re going to come out successfully and be effective when that happens, the time is now to make the plan.
