This time has really created a road block to so many individuals around the world. Loss of jobs, loss of loved ones, working from home, and our health shifting. Instead of focusing on the bad, there are some things that have shifted positively in the world. We have been forced to slow down - and accept that it is okay to do so. We get so caught up in this GO GO GO lifestyle to be the best at what we do; whether it is finances, our job titles, and the competition with one another, that we forget what is really important to us.
With this time of silence, we want you to GO inspire, GO create, GO adventure, and GO connect. When we improve in our personal lives, it will only make us more successful and GO harder on the other things.
After asking our team members what they've been up to during #StayHome, we ended up with 100 replies (and counting) in two days of what we've been up to.
