Control the Controllable

If you are like me and are on overload with information about the Covid-19 virus, media reports, quarantines, travel advisories and/or just “stuff” in general then it is time to take a step back. I had an opportunity to listen to a webinar about hope. Simply put hope is about controlling the things you can control. For example, you can control what you say, what you listen to, where you go, what you do, and how you react. However, the most important thing you can control is your attitude. Henry Ford said “If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.” If you control your attitude you will have hope that you can overcome the overload.

Pandemic Panic?

 In case you have not noticed there is a pandemic. By definition it is an epidemic disease that has spread across a wide region. Here in the NY metro area “draconian” steps are being taken to stop the spread of the Covid19 virus. We have been told that this problem will be here for a period of time and we must take appropriate steps to protect ourselves. I decided to turn off the news and listen to a webinar on steps businesses should take during this pandemic. While several suggestions were offered the one that made the most sense was “Do not make long term decisions for a short term problem”.
Great advice. Take account of the situation you are in and decide what you can do to handle the short term issues such as employee health and safety. Establish priorities and adjust accordingly.
I am here to listen and will be here when this pandemic is over.
