Every crisis is also an opportunity, right?
So since the COVID-19 outbreak has caused ‘Cancelfest 2020’ in my client list and I have some spare time up my sleeve, I’m making a list of things I can use this time for. And I’m sharing it with you in the hope it might help you manage your time and anxiety levels!
I’m calling it a Viral Checklist, but unlike most posts about ‘going viral’ on social media, this is a bit different.
I get lazy and don’t write much, but I LOVE writing, so I’m going to make more time to do that. I might also even try and pick up a book or two. Shantaram has been on my list forever but I fell out of love with reading as an adult…
Send me your book recommendations and also any topics you want to read about from a social media marketing perspective!
Clean out THAT cupboard
We all have one of THOSE cupboards…and I’m going to clean it out! I mean how long do I need to keep stuff that’s still in a box from when we moved into this house…11 years ago!
I think it’s time.
Be part of the solution
I decided that since I had some time on my hands I’d try and be part of the solution.
I felt that information on the virus was very fragmented, and I wanted to be able to check in with one solid source for all the info I needed. I couldn’t understand why there wasn’t a clear voice above the noise to help tell us what to do!
So, I got in touch with my buddy Adam Barrell and asked if I could help him create a hub for WA Coronavirus information, and he was all for it.
As the Founder of So Perth, Adam has an engaged local community and was the perfect platform to use to help educate and inform our citizens.
He got to work, and we created a Facebook Group to share credible news on the virus.
There’s much more coming, but a start s a start and I feel much better from being able to put my skills to use during this time.
I’ve been a regular blood donor for years and I have that rare VIP blood group – O negative. What makes it so precious is that anyone of any blood type can accept transfusions from Oneg blood – so it can help anyone in a triage situation where testing isn’t an option.
I think our hospitals and clinics are probably going to need all the help they can get with blood donations, so if you’re able to – please consider it.
Well that’s me, what about you?
How will you be using your forced down time?
Let me know!
