ALL HANDS ON DECK!
This is NOT a drill!
Life as we've known it has changed!
Now we are all called to change!
First and foremost, we each need to do our part to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. For most of us that means staying in our homes, washing our hands diligently, refraining from touching our eyes, nose and mouth, and when we must go out for some necessity, practicing responsible social distancing (6 feet of separation).
It's frustrating to remain separated from friends and community without knowing when we will be able to get back to a degree of normalcy. Just know that the sooner we can follow the guidance of our medical and scientific experts, the sooner we will halt the spread of the virus and the sooner we can get back to work.
You may have lost your job at this point and there's no guarantee if and when you'll be able to return to that same job. It's normal to be anxious and somewhat powerless in the face of all the uncertainties.
Of course you are not powerless, and you are not alone. We are all in this together. You can use this time to renew relationships at a distance by phone, email, letters, and you can begin to think about steps you can take to shape your personal future. To assist you in the latter, we're making the digital version of the Life-Planning Workbook free until this pandemic is over and we're reducing the price of the printed version from $12.95 to $4.95.
