The second week of March (before many felt driven to quarantine), my family was out of town enjoying Spring Break, without me. I tried to take advantage of my free time. I read an entire book, drank a cup of coffee before it got cold, completed some neglected house projects, and then I went wild and headed down to the DMV for my Real ID. After all that I felt productive, fresh, and ready to welcome home my tribe; but there were still 4 days to fill.
From the Bubonic Plague to Ford’s invention of the assembly line, the way society progresses relies on pivotal events; sometimes intentional and other times not. While we are still adjusting to changes due to COVID-19 and unsure of what the next six months will look like, I can’t help but wonder what history books will say about this time 100 years from now. How will this pandemic affect the way we work and shop, where we choose to live, and more?
It happened again. You receive an urgent email from a client with !!HELP!! in the subject line and a big red exclamation point that immediately sets your heart and brain racing.
