With a great big spoonful of obviousness, it is clear that people are suffering—mentally, physically and economically. While a variety of surveys and data can confirm the level of stress in the country, it is equally as obvious that we don’t need a stupid poll to tell us what we already know. The good news, however, is that stress is usually rooted in worrying about what we cannot control. We just need to focus on the things on which we can have an impact.

See The Light

What an amazing time this has been. Without question, it is one of the most confusing, nerve-racking and frustrating times in modern history. As a result, there has been a never-ending deluge of content around short term tactics like crisis management and home office efficiency. And while it is critical to get things done in the moment, this time should also offer us a chance to reflect and determine what our strategy will be for the future.

Waning Muscles

Over the past month, there has been an endless deluge of blog posts, video messages and podcasts discussing crisis management due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And while I am just as nervous about this pandemic as most, I have been thinking that there’s a bigger epidemic at play. I wonder if maybe we’ve been off track for a good long while.
