Perspective in the Coronavirus Era

A few wise words from the world's most experienced CEO, 104-year old Frances Hesselbein:

“This is not the most difficult time our country has seen. Today, all kinds of digital and virtual avenues of communication bring us together that were previously nonexistent. We have community organizations and community leaders who are moving together.” 

In an era where daily updates are so accessible that the negatives can at times be exacerbated, some perspective is refreshing. 

What are a few things you’ve put into perspective amid the pandemic?

  • Thank you for sharing this, Tyler! I can't believe I haven't heard of Hesselbein before this, but I just came across her Twitter account which has a lot of uplifting and inspiring quotes (even her handle is wonderful): https://twitter.com/ToServeIsToLive

    There are enough social media apps, games, communication channels, etc. to be entertained for countless hours, but they can also be distracting and isolating. Shelter in place has reminded me to put my phone down, eat well, go outside, and be truly present with friends & loved ones (from a safe distance, of course).
