There may be some of us who are trained in crisis management but this will be the first opportunity any of us has actually had to apply the theory. And apply it directly to ourselves, our businesses and family.
We are suddenly just expected to innovate, pivot and be poised without losing our minds. While our kids climb the walls with boredom and projects are put on hold left right and centre. How the hell are we supposed to get this right?
The good news it is perfectly okay to not get it right, to not have all of the answers and to feel totally despondent. Allow yourself the kindness to acknowledge what you feel, take time for what you and your family need and the rest will come.
Time vs Money
So now that you have all of this time on your hands you may feel compelled to help people. But helping people for free isn’t going to pay the bills, but trying to leverage your business off the hard times of others also doesn’t feel right so where does that leave you? Somewhere in the weird, unchartered territory of the middle.
You are going to have days where you feel catatonic with fear, desperation, and panic. You are going to have days where you start eyeballing the gin at 9 am. Let them happen and let them pass so you can get them out of the way for the positive planning days.
You want to look back on this time and be able to tell yourself you made most of and the best you could out of a bizarre scene from what should have only ever been a weird Netflix series.
Your kids are only going to remember that they didn’t have to go to school, that you were at home with them all the time, everybody could stay in their pyjamas all day and they ate pancakes on weekdays.
You have got this.
