Lean In 

No, that doesn’t mean I’m trying to get close to someone who has it. It means that I’m trying to learn as much from this situation as I can.
The current state of things is kind of scary. Some part of me really wants to just stay home and sleep it off (I mean, they say that sleep is good for the immune system) and wake up hoping it’s gone or was all just a dream. The reality is, it’s very real and it’s not likely going away anytime soon. It actually may get worse before it gets better.
As someone who runs a business that has as it’s cornerstone a tight knit community that comes together in large groups on a daily basis … this damn virus is putting a serious hitch in things.
So, what do I do?
I lean in. I look for ways that I can use this situation to get better. How can we improve our systems? How can we continue to serve those who depend on us without putting them at increased risk? How can I make our community and subsequently my business stronger despite this crazy turn of events? These are the things that are keeping me up at night.
So, why am I telling you all of this? I’m not looking for sympathy, although I do want you to understand where we are coming from and how that we are thinking about this situation as much as we can to make it better for you. I’m telling you this because I believe you can learn and benefit from it as well.
Leaning in is critical for growth, personally and physically. In the middle of a terrible workout, you can back off, sit down and cry or you can lean in and explore the boundaries of your capabilities.
During an argument with your significant other, you can scream and yell, jump in your car and head down to the pub and drink yourself into an oblivion or you can lean in and try to figure out the root of the issue and come to a resolution.
You always have options. Typically, there is one best option that will lead to you becoming better. In my opinion, that option is to lean in.
