There’s no doubt about it; COVID-19 has upended our lives – globally. But also, in so many other ways: personally, emotionally, financially, mentally, and everywhere in between. The way we communicate with others, is one of the biggest and most challenging times for me.
They say, ‘choose your battles wisely’. In the last few days, I’ve had to do just that. The issue lies with what the consumer needs, vs. what they can actually get. I would like to express great gratitude to front-line workers’, who put their lives on the line daily. They do so with open hearts, and open minds; morphing into super flexible beings.
But what of those who don’t? Morph into super-caring flexible, want-to-help beings? Unfortunately, my battle has been ongoing for a few days this week with such individuals. In the end, it’s not about winning. It’s about proving a point: if a person has grown bored, tired, nonchalant, or otherwise apathetic, it affects how a person performs their roles in the workplace.
The lesson I’ve learned today most especially, is that a problem is solvable. Period. Working together to make things happen has never been so important these days. So, I’ll keep on keeping on.
Stay well, safe, and healthy folks!
