Are you in the freezer?

Someone asked me yesterday, “Are you in the freezer, or are you moving?”

An interesting conversation opener!

He went on to explain he could see amongst his friends these two responses to the pandemic.

There are those who are staying still, doing what they must to keep their finances alive, but otherwise waiting for life to resume.

And there are those that are doing something, anything, to prepare for what’s coming next, whatever that is.

I think I am mostly in the second camp, but I can certainly see some aspects of my life I have simply put in the freezer.

What about you?

Without doubt, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will reverberate for years to come and change society in ways we can’t yet imagine.

Which response, freeze or move, do you think will prove to be the best?

My best wishes, Paul
