Same Old

Do you find yourself drowning in monotony these days? Same people, same environment, not much excitement? Pre-COVID, you may have said it’s time to spice things up and try something new. Your options have changed. There are limitations now that did not exist before. So, what do you do?

One approach is to create something new. You can do this, even in the confines of your present situation. Rather than look to the conditions of the past, look to now. What can you do that is different? Who can you help? What can you write? The possibilities are endless

So, if you are in a “same old” energy, get cracking. ☺ Bring something new into your world!

Are We In This For the Long Haul?

In some circumstances, we say we are in a project or partnership for the long haul. What’s going on is that we are making a commitment to stick with something. It is our choice and agency to do so. These days, it is dawning on us that we may be in this COVID-altered world for the long haul in the United States. It is not within our full choice or control.

Since this possibility exists and the changes we are experiencing are significant, it does not hurt to think out the best way to navigate this time. Many of us are trying to get back to “normal”. It no longer exists. We live in an altered world and we best accept that. Giving some thought to being in this situation for the long haul can increase your chances of success and fulfillment in the future.

Losing Track Of Days

Some clients have been mentioning to me that they are losing track of days. That’s understandable. Work spaces, work routines and pacing have all turned upside down. What once was easy may now take some conscious effort. If you are having trouble keeping track of days, start each day recognizing what day of the week and calendar date it is. Then, you know where you are and can proceed with your work day.
