How I Gauge When Things Will “Return To Normal”

2020 calendar from DepositPhotos.com.

Many internships are being canceled or postponed.

Travel and tourism are all over the place.

Conferences

Relevant expert scientists

What can I do about any of this?

  1. Stay as safe as I can, both for my own health and for the health of those who I could possibly pass something to (unknowingly). I have to remember that if I had COVID-19 and didn’t know it, I touched somebody else’s computer, phone, or drinking glass, and they touched it even days later, I could infect them. I could kill them. I can’t take those chances.
  2. I can keep writing articles and doing live streams. I’ve seen some authors/speakers decide to write less and stop streaming or podcasting because engagement and listens are down. Well, sure, people are stressed. At best their lives and schedules are upside-down. I would rather have a YouTube library of content and ideas you can try later — when you’re ready — than to hold off creating content until I think you’re paying more attention to me the moment I’m delivering that content.
