My life has changed a lot during this huge, albeit enforced, global lockdown experiment.
I am finding it quite an intriguing time for a re-evaluation of both my life and my work, and figuring out what’s really important when some of what I thought was important has been taken off the table.
I am playing the game of “What’s new for me?” and every day I notice something else new and wonder what I can do with it.
Some things are personal and perhaps even trivial, such as my body is clearly liking less frequent use of chemicals like deodorant, and there is little ironing to do.
Some things are work-related, such as the fact that the people who buy from me have changed, so my strategy must change. Keeping doing what I have been doing is simply not an option.
Every day, for a few days, play the game “What’s new for me?”
What do you notice, and what do you realise about what you notice?
If there is a benefit in what you notice, what would it be?
We must focus on the potential for sunshine in the storm, or all we see is storm. The sunshine is coming 🙂
Note: I am thinking about me. Of course I am. But my heart and thoughts go out to those on the front line. Most of us will never realise what you have done for us and what it cost you. Thank you.
My best wishes, Paul
