Strange times right now. I’ve been saying that for some, thinking it a lot more.
The current COVID-19 pandemic, this situ bares in stark relief the bigger picture frame I’ve been thinking about for a while.
Circumstances changing, expected some, some not expected; no matter either way, change, adjust we must.
These neubulus images offered, just what does it all mean? It all amounts to the “New Normal”, the new standard, the benchmark to strive to.
The New Normal means what you, we, I should expect, work to, live to, each hour, each day.
Seems to me this idea plays to a theme I return to again and again: access, accommodate, adjust. What next? Adapt, and advance toward the goal.
At home with the family during Shelter In Place Times? The New Normal.
At home full time with three little kids responding to their needs, moods, wants? The New Normal.
Working from Home as best we can, finding creating space to do so, time to do so. Strive to still do good work in new environ and confines and pace? The New Normal.
Responding to new demands to the position you have at work, the work you do, what the job, what the market requires? Well, maybe this isn’t really the New Normal.
On this front, it’s just normal. It’s always how it’s been. It’s how it will always been. Figured it out, solve the problem, hit the number, finish the project, then…?
What’s next on the list, what’s the new goal, revised or otherwise? It’s Normal. The same principles apply, in a new way perhaps, but apply they do.
Get after it. And make it GOOD.
