Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely
On Thursday Governor Gavin Newsom announced a shelter-in-place order for California residents. This proves to be difficult for many people who are used to being on the go and getting their hustle on every day.
While 16 critical sectors remain open, most businesses are closed. This leaves a large part of Californians sequestered at home. Of course, this is a necessary evil if we want to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
So the question is what can you do at home during this time of uncertainty? There is always so much to do. Here are some ideas for you to consider:
Learn more about your business
Whatever your business is there’s always something to learn. Take this time to study in-depth, the ins-and-outs of your business. If you are in real estate, for example, catch up on continuing education. Study your competition. Learn the different facets of your business that you may not have had time to learn previously. Research. Learn. Grow.
Spend time with your family
The stay-at-home order is pretty much forcing you to spend time with your family. But are you really spending time with them? In this day and age of cell phones and computers, people can put themselves in a bubble and be oblivious to what’s going on even in their own homes. Consider unplugging! Pull out board games. Make family meals together and enjoy them around the kitchen table. Make memories even if they’re in your living room. Pick a big bowl of popcorn and Netflix and chill. NO! Not that kind of Netflix and chill. The family PG version is what I’m talking about. Just talk to each other. Learn more about each other. Unite.
Get an education
I know most of you would rather watch paint dry then go back to school. But a cure for boredom could be expanding your horizons by learning something new. There are many online courses that are now offering free training. Here are just a few:
According to Quora, Coursera is a free online learning tool for everyone who has an account registered. Account registration is also free of cost. All courses offered by Coursera are “accessible for free”. Each course includes short video lectures on different topics and assignments to be submitted, usually on a weekly basis.
It’s Stanford University. It needs no introduction. There are classes that you can audit.
According to the definition on Wikipedia, edX is a massive open online course provider. It hosts online university-level courses in a wide range of disciplines to a worldwide student body, including some courses at no charge. It also conducts research into learning based on how people use its platform.
Learn a new hobby
Learning a new hobby will surely pass time. Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet? Or how about learning to play the piano? The internet is chock-full of how-to videos. So just type in YouTube in your search bar and find the hobby that suits you.
Get some exercise
The shelter-in-place order does mean you have to be completely closed off. You can still go for walks. Just make sure you stay six feet away from the next guy. Walk away from cabin fever!
Whatever you decide to do this during this coronavirus pandemic; make it count! Use this extra time wisely. Whether it’s reading a book, budgeting your checkbook, cuddling with loved ones, or just catching up on sleep; appreciate the break, look on the bright side and be thankful. Very thankful. Stay Safe!
