An opportunity for a great many things

As cities around the world enforce a quarantine and many people are encouraged or forced to stay home, we need to look at this situation as an opportunity rather than a challenge. This is not to say that these are not challenging times but if we can shift our perspective we can shift how we approach what is happening. 

If you are in good health and confined to your home then look at this as a wonderful opportunity for change and growth. There are so many things you can be doing but as in my previous email, start with your mind. Get yourself in the right frame of mind. You can’t leverage this time for change and growth if your mind is a mess. 

You can watch my TEDx talk, Unwavering Focus, to learn some tools and teachings on how to get started with this. 

Next up, make a plan. If you are going to be homebound for 2-weeks or more then ask yourself how can you leverage this opportunity to create change and growth in your life.

If that question is too daunting then you can start with a simpler question such as, What is something that I have been wanting to do that I have not had the time to do?” It could be reading a book or taking an online course to learn a skill or personal development tools. 

How about cleaning up the clutter in your home? Now that is something a lot of people have. Find that messy closet, or spice cabinet or room and start cleaning it. 

The worst thing you can do to yourself right now is to sit and do absolutely nothing. I’ll share in an upcoming email why this is so detrimental to mental health especially at a time like this. 

Your homework: Make a list of three things you have been wanting to do but have not and get them done in the next 2 weeks. Can you commit to doing this?

Do you really know yourself?

I had a long conversation with Katinka Magnussen from Germany about life’s purpose, workspaces, and priorities. One of the questions that we talked about was how you get to know yourself better. The very simple answer is you have to spend time with yourself. What I mean by that is actually ...
