Trying Times: Luck or Loss?
The world has come to a recent halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has seemingly stood in the way of many of our plans. I am two quarters away from graduation and now I am sitting at home, wondering when I will be allowed back to school, only to find out that the National Board Exam I planned on taking today, has been rescheduled to the weekend of my birthday! Things certainly do not always go as planned.
In these times of uncertainty, we still have a choice: We can sit back and have an extended vacation and blame our losses on what is wrong with the world, or we can take every opportunity to look for new ways to win in life. I think I will choose the latter… Who is with me?
So we are stuck at home, those of us in school are unable to work on our graduation requirements, some of those in practice are wondering if they will be allowed to keep their doors open tomorrow. What can we do from this position to advance ourselves and help our community? Here are just a few thoughts on how to productively pass our time in quarantine…
Touch up your resume or CV
Work on those vision boards
Encourage the community through social media
The list can go on and on but one thing is clear, we can choose to spend this time binge watching television shows for days, upset that our plans have taken a new route, or we can use it to complete the tasks that we have been putting off and to carve out new paths for our lives. What will you be doing with your unexpected time off? I would love to hear any ideas you have for how we can all be productive from the comfort of our own homes!
Until next time, enjoy the ride!
