Week 3 of QUARANTINE.
The COVID-19 is sweeping our nation – the world. Today, SC was put on shelter-in-place mandate.
Many are starting 30-day April challenges. I was fortunate enough to have one of my colleagues start one for our communications team at work. We had our first call on Monday and the participation was impressive. I learned that one of my colleagues likes to paint – and is pretty damn good at it! Some are doing burpee challenges. Some are taking the time to bake some of their favorite things.
I signed myself up for two things. One is to complete a 5K training program (8 weeks), which if I stick to the schedule means I will be running 3 days a week. Week 1 was a success!
Second, I committed to “creative” writing (not work-related) at least 5 days a week. Week one was NOT a success. Between April 1 – 7 I only wrote three days (this being the third).
Rather than committing to working on just one piece of writing, I’m going to write whatever strikes me that day. Maybe a blog post (like I am now – my first one in more than a year, I’m ashamed to say). Maybe I’ll work on my eBook draft. Maybe I’ll write letters to friends and family (thanks, Blake, for that suggestion!). I simply want to commit to writing something…anything…more days than not throughout the month. And we’ll see what comes of it.
I am going to make an effort to post once a week on my blog. So stay tuned, if you so wish….
And finally I must give the advice:
