5 Questions To Ask Yourself During This Pandemic Lockdown
Brainstorming with a friend, we came to the conclusion that this is the best time to ask ourselves serious questions so as to reinvent oneself.
If you have been working for a company for more than 5yrs and you don’t have 100k savings … *You need to think*
If you have been doing a particular hustle for more than 5yrs and nothing to show for it.. *You need to think.*
If you’ve spent one month at home under Lockdown drawing from your reserves without cash inflows from other sources……
*YOU NEED TO THINK.*
IF You’ve spent 30 days at home browsing the internet, responding to greetings in Facebook, looking up pictures in Instagram, watching YouTube videos, responding to WhatsApp chats, calling everyone and nobody is calling you…. .
*YOU NEED TO THINK.*
IF you’ve spent 30 days at home eating delicacies,drinking choice wine, sleeping, watching movies and exercising in your gym without reading a word from any book…
*YOU NEED TO THINK*
*30 days Lockdown means 720 idle hours.
*720 idle hours translates to 43,200 minutes of idle time.
*8 Man hours worktime per day translates to 240 hours lost time or capacity under utilization or inefficiency index.
Life has given us almost a month to think about ourself and come out with a Grand Strategy and productive plan to stem the tide.
What we are facing now is almost the same thing retirees face when they retire and even worse.
One thing to note for sure is that, at the end of this pandemic, many businesses will suffer severe setbacks and new ones will emerge out of thick skin.
Start-Ups will swallow SMEs, Digital media will bury traditional media, Artificial Intelligence will take out unskilled labour.
Billionaires will feel the heat and new ones will need longer time to emerge.
So, ask yourself, which side will I belong to when this Lockdown is over?
Meanwhile, as we speak, most companies are also typing their own *redundancy* letters to be distributed .
Don’t spend your time waiting for *COVID-19* daily statistics and doing all manner of social media challenge.
*SIT AT HOME . LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE, THINK. STRATEGIZE and COME OUT STRONGER*

The Game Changers after the Lockdown are:
