It’s challenging to focus on opportunity right now because it is something you hadn’t thought of before.
With Covid-19 panic, critical and creative thinking is currently rushed and hallucinogenic.
Now is not the time to begin executing a new master plan to save your livelihood. Just like a medical wake up call is not the time to sign up for a marathon, assuming that the unhealthy person is not a runner and probably never was, now is not the time to think you can do the right work and handle a massive “reinvention” workload.
Summary: If you didn’t have it in you before, you aren’t going to flip a switch and have it now. And if you have it now, it’s because you’ve been doing the long, slow grind of a lifetime of personal and professional development. Congrats.

Yesterday a 9th grader visited the 7th and 8th graders and was sharing with them how his father taught him extensively about money. From the time he was a little boy he was shown the bills, payments, investments – he saw them all and even had to sign off that he read them.
Fast forward this same boy to 7th and 8th grade and the Internet.
The fatherly advice for free, unlimited, unrestricted Internet access? “Don’t go on You Tube, there’s bad stuff there”.
Not judging (even if it sounds like it). Rather, observing the difference in detail.
We teach what we know. Don’t we?
An expert money manager? For sure.
An Internet expert in the new, global social economy? You decide.
