Stop Worrying and Living Lively is Tough
I have been stressed as a mom for almost a month time, as a working mom who travels around, faces people, eats outside and comes back home. Absolutely, the first thing for me when stepping into the home is to call my daughter and ask her to give a hug. That moment has been missing for a while, I could see in my daughter’s eyes, she knew well what’s going on.
Lydia the singer and a mom: I saw her post, she didn’t even dare to cry, because she wants to avoid the virus spreading through her tears. Thinking of the same situation, it’s really tough if I can’t see my daughter for over 2 weeks also without knowing when it ends.
The best thing we can do and control is to try our best to protect ourselves and distance human touch and small living germs. Stay away from it, so we can stay close to the ones we love.
Focusing on Work During Fear is Challenging
No wonder the business stops: Small businesses, big organizations, and Independent Professionals are all in!
In the business world, we keep talking about digital disruption for years. We learn new skills, adapt our mindsets, and equip ourselves to be tech-savvy. With the lockdown these days, employers put more energy to engage employees to keep productivity. Employees need even more superpowers to thrive through this volatile time. Imagine that a salesperson is eager to make calls and is very disciplined. Sadly, external factors canceled face-to-face meetings and delayed payment terms, they cannot win or fight. We wish we would overcome all these situations soon.
