14 Mar From Lockdown to Liftoff: Make This Lockdown a Positive Experience
Wash your hands, sit down and ask: “What’s the best I could hope for in my next job?”
- Be called back from my previous employer?
- Same job, different place?
- Engage in a mission I was meant for?
- Start or buy my own business?
Crazy or smart at such a time of uncertainty? For most, there is incredible pressure to get a new income stream as soon as possible. Bills, healthcare, 401-K, eating…the list doesn’t end. it’s hard to turn off your brain and think about anything else.
Assuming this pandemic dies a well-deserved death… you WILL go back to work. Employers will need to make up for lost revenue and you will need to rebuild your savings.
This could be an opportunity of a lifetime. You have the time. Use it.
“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” – H. Ford
