Greetings from socially distant Washington, D.C.
Like all of you, we’re hunkered down, doing our best to achieve proper (six-feet-or-more) social distancing while figuring out how to be productive.
It’s not going to be easy.
With college students and school kids home for the foreseeable future, it will be hard to be productive and patient within the confines of our living spaces. We will, in the next two to three weeks, learn a great deal about our ability to thrive doing work in, metaphorically speaking, uncharted waters.
That’s why I’m reaching out to you all, today, with a big ask.
I want to know how you plan to get through the COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak. How has your daily routine changed? What tools are you using to engage with your team members and clients? What are you doing to balance the hours of the day between work responsibility and the needs of your loved ones? How are you managing stress?
Please share your work and survival hacks HERE. If we like your ideas, then we may reach out, to invite you on to The Tightrope Podcast to tell your COVID-19/work story to the world.
Also, please share this video with your friends and work colleagues. Spead the word, not germs, and we’ll learn and share a lot of great practices.
Meantime, do know that we will get through this. Our best days lie ahead.
Please catch up on our latest episode of The Tightrope Podcast with guest Adelle Settle of the food justice nonprofit Settle the Debt. We discuss Settle the Debt’s amazing fundraising success, and, efforts in place to feed in-need kids who, because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak, will not be able to get their meals at school
