Generational Advice #1
Social distancing, shelter-in-place…
I’m longing for the days when we are back to ‘normal.’
Today is crazy because unless you’re part of the amazing health care field or you’re one of those incredible people that are keeping food on our shelves, or keeping us safe, you probably are working from home.
And if you’re one of those people that are working from home and you’re not used to working from home… your spouse is home, and your kids are home or your partner’s home… It is a new level of crazy stress.
That is why multi-generational leadership and connectivity is so important. It does not matter what generation you belong to, other people are looking at you for leadership. I had someone tell me recently that this is not a new normal, because there’s nothing normal about keeping us away from each other.
She said it is necessary though. It’s the new necessary! I love that phrase – “It’s the new necessary”.
What that means is, it’s not the new forever. There will come a time when we can open our doors and we will be back with our friends, our coworkers, our loved ones again.
But right now, it’s necessary to follow these new rules, but it’s not the new forever.
