Challenging Times, but don’t let the tree get in the way…
Greetings Everyone and welcome to this adventurous, challenging, and interesting time in our community.
Lots of things have changed in the last week, and during this adventure, we need to think creatively about solutions and opportunities that can help provide some great “value and benefit” to our clients and colleagues.
We know that personal contact with colleagues and friends will be compromised right now, but let’s think about all of the things we can do.
-Video Conferencing, phone conferencing, emailing, and Social Media will become very big aspects of every business in the immediate future. Learning, enhancing, and perfecting these features will be essential during this time, and undoubtedly this will prove very efficient, productive, and effective.
-Even though all of these communication options are readily available, they will become even more essential as everyone starts thinking about creative ways to connect and communicate on a regular basis.
As we regroup and reevaluate this dynamic situation here are some great quotes to inspire some great thoughts:
There’s going to be stress in life,
but it’s your choice whether to let it affect you or not.
The strength of the team is each member,
the strength of each member is the team.
You were born to win, but to be a winner,
you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.
On a much lighter side, here are some great things we can appreciate:
-We don’t have to put up any shutters, so using ladders won’t be necessary;
-Gas prices are really great right now, so taking a nice long drive and listening to audible may be a great opportunity;
-We have the technology to make more toilet paper so even though shelves are bare; suppliers will still find a way to deliver more products;
-Oil stocks and cruise ship stocks are really low right now, so you can buy low, sell high, and go on a great vacation when this clears.
Otherwise, the best way to really address the current scenario is to pretend a really big tree fell in our path, and we have to find a way to remove it, climb over it, or cut through it so we can continue onto the path of success and prosperity. Other options are less captivating.
Until then I look forward to connecting with you sooner than later.
