Imagine a place where we are on the stay at home order but we have no virus and people aren’t worried about not being able to make money. Sounds pretty nice huh..? Or does is…
The great things that have come from this…
A lot of people right now are having a hard time because they can’t physically touch and feel other people. And they thrive off of that interaction. Me, I’m not one of those people, but I realize that there are a lot of people like that out there.
What I have noticed is that we are connecting with people that we wouldn’t have seen in person much, much more often. We had a family call just the other day with people in Seattle, Michigan, Israel, and Arizona, all on the same Zoom call. This had never happened before (that I’m aware of).
So, there are definitely some really amazing things that are coming from this stay at home order that is happening right now, and I sure hope it lasts.
I’m thinking that a lot of times we are filling our social interaction quota by connecting with the cashier at the grocery store, or the waiter at the restaurant, and then not needing to fill that up anymore. And these days we are needing that missed connection, and we are reaching to the people that we know. Which ends up being the people that we should have been filling our quota with anyway!
Are you thinking about what sets you on fire?
What I hope is coming from this stay at home order is that people are thinking about what makes them feel at their best. I believe that a lot of people haven’t had enough hardship in their lives to really figure out who they are and what they love. And now is a great time to figure that out. In fact (like getting into awesome shape) it is the greatest of times to do that!
I personally had to go through this back when I lived in NYC. I learned about the 5 person rule, and realized that I didn’t have 5 people in my life that I wanted to be like. So I dove head first into audiobooks written by people that I’d like to be like. Audiobooks by people like Tony Robbins, Dale Carnegie, and such. I was in the middle of one of the most populated cities in the world and I was isolating myself to books.
This turned out to be one of the best things that I could have ever done. And it helped me to realize what I wanted from life, what made me really happy, what made me excited, who I wanted to be around, where I wanted to be, and so much more. It was one of the hardest times in my life, and one of the best (if not the best).
Next up we have the environment…
I would be in 100% favor of a restricted driving days system if we could have these clear sky’s stick around. And it’s funny that people have been saying that the virus was Earths way of healing itself. It just might be…
Anyway, before this stay at home order, I wouldn’t have been in favor of a restricted driving days system. It would have felt too confining to me. But now that we’ve had to have zero driving days… I think we really could do it!
We could have certain license plates drive on MWF, and others on TTh, and then switch. I think we would adapt.
And maybe you could get out of that by having an electric car… assuming we don’t find a reason that the electric cars are polluting the environment in a different way.
This is still the best time to get fit
Like I mentioned in podcast 244, this is still the best time in your life to get into the best shape of your life. And you should be taking that first step towards that reality. And you should be thinking about how you’re going to continue that momentum after we have the stay at home order lifted.
Lastly, we need to be thinking about how we are NOT going to be moving right back to our old bad habits after we can move freely again. Keep what you’ve changed for the better.
