Are you ok?April 6
A very short and simple question that can go a long way right now.
For those of us who remember the recession, and I unfortunately do, I recall being in a blind panic most of the time with very little, if any, support available.
This is so different, or it feels it to me anyway.
It has made me realise how important it is to work with people that share the same values as you do. Back in 2008/9 that simply wasn’t the case and it felt like dog eat dog, like everyone was working against each other.
Fast forward to 2020 and it is the complete opposite.
This time, rather than businesses fighting each other, we are supporting each other. Sharing the information that comes available as soon as we can. We are reassuring each other that things will be ok, because they will.
I have been in touch with many of my contacts to check if they are ok, to see if they have all the information that is available and sharing any additional nuggets that come my way. Equally a lot of people have contacted me in the same vain and it is so comforting to be approached and to be asked “are you ok?”
Don’t underestimate the power of those 3 little words and don’t be too proud either.
What has offered you reassurance and comfort at this difficult time?
