What Again


It looks as though the virus is winning in many parts of our country. We can beat it, yet we have to be willing to do what it takes. And this means that we have to distance ourselves from each other to deny the virus hosts within which to foster growth.  Obviously, it means another lockdown.

For many of us, the first round of isolation was terrible enough. Yet, if we are going to live and survive, we will probably have to endure this again. The good news is that we have recent experience with isolation. Therefore, we had to hopefully learn some things that we can utilize to make this run more bearable. After all, If we have to do this anyway, why not enjoy it.

Plan now, and be prepared. If you know that you will need some tools or parts to do specific jobs during your new isolation, pick them up now, and be ready. If you want to do anything essential while stores are still open and most companies are also, now is the time. You want to have both necessities and a few luxuries that will make the time more bearable. We also want to pray that it doesn’t come to another isolation. Yet, if it does, the more prepared you are, the easier it could be on you. Please don’t take my word for this, consider it and see if it makes sense.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
