For the past many years, the CDC’s link for a zombie apocalypse has resided in the list of emergency preparedness resources on my website. No one has ever commented on it, but my twisted sense of humor enjoys knowing it’s tucked in there amidst the serious stuff. We all need a little levity at unexpected times.
And now we have “organizing during a pandemic.” Do you think I ever imagined this photo taken during a paper triaging project would be useful???
While the coronavirus is putting a wrench in our collective vibe, on the plus side, it is leading to creative impromptu work- and school-from-home modifications, pantry and freezer re-organization, and amazing community support of one another from afar. ‘Social distancing’ has become the new game in town, and I hope you, like me, are willing to play by the rules.
Being mindful about protecting both those with whom I come in contact most and myself, I decided late last week to postpone all in-person organizing sessions and shift temporarily to “remote” organizing and coaching. Business will be lighter, or who knows, it may come to a complete halt, while everyone rejiggers themselves and settles into new routines. But perhaps you, like me, aim to use this unexpected swath of time at home to do things you’ve been meaning to do. (My list is short but mighty as is the stack of unread books.)
If you’re wondering how you might work on organizing projects during the pandemic and how I might be able to help you, one-on-one sessions are now being conducted via telephone, Zoom, or FaceTime (or another mode of our choosing).
Let me help you find, ignite, and keep up momentum! If you are interested and willing to give it a try, we can schedule a call to discuss how I can best support the next steps in any of your projects. You might be surprised at the possibilities!
Most of all, stay safe, wash your hands, and listen to professionals and civic leaders who know what they’re talking about.
We’re all in this together while we’re apart.
P.S. I have revived the popular weekly “One small Sunday task” on my facebook page to help you focus on and move along little projects that ultimately make an impact in your life. Please follow along and do whatever moves you.
