I awoke this morning and thought “Hell, what am I going to do about COVID-19 virus? I have listened to the news broadcasts for direction. Because of my age, My wife and I decided to take affirmative action. If we were going to be coping endlessly, affirmative action was necessary.
- Cancel all social engagements as a safety precaution.
- Practice self-isolation.
- Control what we can control.
- Stay calm, contain our emotions
- Seek perspective until the crisis passes.
- Make decisions about the future direction of our business.
We thought about it. “How will our future change and what are we going to do about it”. While it’s pushing many out of long-established comfort zones, we must keep our ‘engines’ revved up to action the opportunities discovered.
While the COVID-19 outbreak continues to be the most prominent topic globally, as well as in every workplace, even in the regional, rural and remote communities, new opportunities will start to become apparent shortly.
What would it mean for you to be able to share your wisdom and gifts, especially now, to ease someone else’s problems and frustrations, lift their spirits, allow them to dream of possibilities again, or teach them something they want or need?
Coping endlessly will require new disciplines.
Perhaps this is the time to take working remotely seriously. Working from a home-based business or even moving to a regional, rural or remote area. If you’re currently working, you have more than likely expected to work from home, at least until the crisis passes.
Of course, the stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemics is hard on everyone. If you’re currently looking for a job, this might understandably put some additional emphasis on the remote part of it to help support your efforts in finding and establishing a new business or career.
Inclusiveness in the remote rural areas in particular, and the regions generally, all lag in terms of employment and growth opportunities. There are many things you can’t control. However, there is one thing you can manage ‘how you respond to adversity’.

Key Message: You will never have another time in your life where you can make such a small sacrifice and potentially change your career or reshape your business to achieve the outcomes you are seeking.
