How to Be Inspired (and Inspiring) in a COVID-19 Era

by Mar 16, 202018 comments

You don’t need any message from me about what to do (social distancing, hand-washing, etc.). So let’s look at this a little differently…..

We have all been given the gift of time – what will you do with your gift?


We have a golden opportunity to use this gift in positive, productive, compassionate, loving and inspiring ways.  For example:

  • Call someone you haven’t spoken to for a while and tell them you love them.
  • Call an employee and let them know how grateful you are for their good work.
  • Be silly.
  • Back up your computer.
  • Meditate.
  • Exercise.
  • Be grateful that you are healthy and saving lives by staying home.
  • Study YouTube to learn about that project you have been putting off for so long.
  • Renew your vows.
  • Get some extra rest.
  • Learn something new.
  • Gather your team on a video call – and celebrate.
  • Have a quarantini .
  • Become more familiar with video conferencing software (Teams, Zoom, Maestro, Facetime, Google Meet, etc) – they are your future.
  • Love more.
  • Stop reading all the news about the novel coronavirus – serve others and stay optimistic instead.
