As you think back on the this last year, what do you miss most? Is it being with others? Is it people you lost due to the pandemic or other causes? Are there favorite activities that have been on hold for awhile now? Are there places you want to go? Are there people you want to see? Do you miss the interaction and exchange of ideas in meetings?
How have you grown in the last year? What new skills have you developed? Do you have new interests? Have you developed new habits? Have you abandoned some other habits? Are you healthier? Are you reading more? Have you found a renewed interest in learning? Are you more physically fit? Have you become a better money manager? Do you appreciate friends more? Do you have increased appreciation and understanding of family?
“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for extraordinary destiny”–C. S. Lewis
Are there things you do not miss? Are there meetings you hope you never attend again? What about commuting?
“In the rush to get back to normal, use this time to decide which parts of normal are worth rushing back to.”–Dave Hollis
As you talk of the pandemic in the future, what stories will you tell? What will be your lasting impressions?
