There are many upsides of the crisis and while we are enjoying some of the restrictions taken off in Stage 2 and 3, we need to appreciate the lasting impacts of the benefits of these restrictions in our lives and organizations.
1. Less meetings we don't need. Virtual filters all the non-essential, repetitious, and dull meetings with no agenda or objectives in mind.
2. Less travels we don't need. Non-essential travel ban forces us to look at our travel plans and adjust to whatever can create enjoyment without crossing the border and spending monies on hotels, flights, in-ground transportations, and other splurges.
3. Less time to be inundated with people wanting to talk to you to get something. The pandemic forces us to be more respectful of people's time and mindful of how we come across to them, being positive and always offering value.
4. Less time to tinker and float around. No, this is not the time to ease on the gas pedal. We can be mediocre and comfortable with routines but this time, it calls for greater vigilance and response-ability to changing dynamics every couple of weeks.
5. Less time to feel down and out. The less time for work can give us the focus we need to spend more time with families and hobbies that can rejuvenate us.
What other upsides do you experience in the recovery stage?
How can we build a lasting legacy of positive effects we can internalize now and moving forward?
