2020 has been off to a rocky start to say the least. The Corona Virus has started a global epidemic. Stores running out of supplies, people panicking, rumors of possible quarantines, kind of reminds me of an episode of The Walking Dead. I'm enthused over the NBA, so I never would've thought that the season would be suspended because of a virus. Plenty other events are now canceled or postponed as well. With all of the negativity caused by the virus, we can still find some good in the situation though.
News about a country quarantine has been spreading like a wildfire lately. I know no one wants to be held in their house like prisoners, but it may be a good thing. If it comes to that point, we can do plenty of great things while we wait until the "coast is clear".
Sometimes we get so caught up in our lifestyles, that we forget about the ones who we do what we do for. Being quarantined, would be a great time to just focus on our loved ones. I know I could finally have a few days where I could consistently potty train my toddler, so that would be awesome! Also, I enjoy reading, and since there will be no distractions, (Work, NBA, March Madness), this would be a great time to start and finish reading some books.
One of the most important things we could do with our new found free time is working on some goals or projects. Maybe there's an app you might've been wanting to focus on, or an email marketing campaign for your business. Maybe you might've wanted to learn a new skill, like photoshop, coding, etc. Whatever drives you, or "grinds your gears", you may have ample time to focus on it. So, if we happen to have to quarantine, don't panic at all. Just use time to be thankful and productive.
Until next time gadgeteers!
