5 Steps to make sure you are ready for the “New Normal”

I am not sure about you, but I am a bit unsure about what the working world will look like once we officially open up for business.

Most of us have had time to reflect and evaluate our lives prior to the pandemic. I know I have been going through everything. My career opportunities, my personal relationships, reorganizing my house. I now can look in the mirror and no longer get startled by the amount of grey hair I see. I can look beyond the grey and see me. I have to admit that this is something I have not been able to do for quite some time. Life was so busy. I would think that by taking care of my outside appearance, I was taking care of myself. Which Is really only part of it and believe me, as soon as I can get into the salon I will be there. But the lesson I have learned will not be covered up as quickly as this grey hair will. To see my true self has brought a calmness I did not expect. It really has been exactly what I have been searching for blindly, for so many years.

It takes 40 days to really solidify a new routine. After 40 days it becomes a habit. Most of us have been in self-isolation for 40 days. What habit have you taken on?

We all experienced uncertainty going into this pandemic and we will experience uncertainty moving into the “new normal”. However, you do not need to experience uncertainty with where you will fit in any longer.

Here are 5 questions to ask yourself to reflect on what will be important to you. I encourage you to write your answers down with a pen on a piece of paper. There actually is a scientific proof that handwriting your notes provides a stronger conceptual understanding than typing or just thinking. You will also have a greater chance of remembering what you wrote down.
