We’re living in extraordinary times.  Like the rest of the world, you likely find yourself in crisis management mode to some degree. You may feel stuck or even trapped.  It’s hard.  We feel some of the same things.  What this pandemic has not taken from us is our ability to bounce back from adversity such as this.  In fact, rightly leveraged,  these difficult times could be the very thing that allows us to thrive in the future.  The other thing that remains in the midst the onslaught of Covid-19 is the need to develop and nurture meaningful relationships.

We’re not physically together.  We understand that. But there are ways to stay connected.  It may be more important now than ever.

And who knows, maybe the fact that our busyness has been stripped from us will allow us to create the margin necessary to make investments in meaningful relationships.  Please hang in there and make good use of your time.  Something resembling normal will return to us eventually.  But for now, embrace the extraordinary opportunities that these extraordinary times are presenting.
