Day 100 – Learning to Adapt
It is now 100 days since the #Covid19 lockdown first began in India.
A lot has happened since then…
We learned to #WFH, and to cope with the “new normal”.
We dealt with Technology challenges, and tried to find a quiet space in our homes – with a charging point nearby.
We coped with ever-changing rules and regulations in our cities, while running out of essentials in our neighbourhoods.
We managed year-end performance appraisals and organizational restructurings. And downsizings.
We learnt to celebrate our special occasions on Microsoft Teams and Zoom calls.
What most of us thought would only last weeks, is running well into the second-half of 2020.
But, we are coping. And learning. And thriving.
Yes, every situation is unique. Every city has its own problems. Every country is struggling to deal with the pandemic in its own ways.
Yes, the harshness (and necessity) of the #lockdown in India may not quite compare with that in Sweden or New Zealand.
But, we humans have an almost infinite capacity to adjust… and adapt.
So, we adapt, we must…
I am grateful to have a team at work that is committed and capable – it makes my day go a little bit easier.
I am grateful for the love and support of my family – it helps me keep the faith.
