How does one respond to a crisis?
The global crisis brought about by the novel corona virus pandemic may be tougher than most. Our lives are dramatically changing with an effort to cope and survive.
However, every crisis is an opportunity to be better. Better at taking care of ourselves, better at looking after one another, even from a distance; better at finding solutions, better at controlling our emotions and focusing on what is at hand.
When the going gets tough we need to focus on living through the crisis. Live through the uncertainty and know that this pandemic will end eventually, hopefully sooner!
In the meantime, hang on and know that you are not alone.
Here’s an excerpt of my keynote speech at SFU Beedie School of Business that would hopefully inspire you to keep going through these tough times.
