Corona Virus: How can I help?

COVID-19 Corona Virus

One of the most important things we can do to help right now is to practice social distancing. Stay home. Wash your hands. This has been proven to help both through history and also in the difference between how this virus spread in Korea vs the way it spread in Italy.

What we don’t want to happen is for our medical system to be overwhelmed. If that happens, there won’t be enough ventilators to save lives of sick people and health care workers will get sick because they run out of protective equipment and because they are fatigued by overwork.

Right now. You have the chance to help. It may not be easy, but you can save lives and you can even find ways to enjoy a slower pace.

Here are some solid sources for information:

Ask a better question

When facing adversity…

Instead of: “Why did this happen to me?”

Try asking: “How can I use this experience to grow?” and “How can I come through this as a more loving, stronger human being?”

Instead of: “What am I going to do with these kids home 24 / 7?

Try asking,” How can I use this time to build a stronger, happier family and have a lot of fun doing it?”

Instead of: “What if my business goes under?”

Try asking: “How can I use my business, influence or power to be of service in making sure we all have what we need?”
