In many ways, I feel like we're finally over the hump when it comes to this pandemic.
Sentiment has been changing.
I see everyone starting to slowly get back to normal by interacting more and definitely taking more action.
There are still serious problems around the world with the virus itself but this shouldn't stop us living our lives and working on our businesses.
After all the terrible events that have occurred in the past, there was always a big resurgence and growth.
Let's seize the opportunity now before we fall behind.
Hey, Cam here. I'm out in the forest. I'm got my gravel bike and doing a bit of riding, doing a bit of thinking. Nicky is out here running. So I thought I'd stop and do one of my videos.
So today, Day 24, I feel like we're over the hump. Just six more to go. Today, I just wanted to talk about the way sentiment has been changing around the pandemic.
So I've noticed particularly in New Zealand people are starting to get a lot less scared. And they're starting to interact more, act more, maybe not as much waiting and seeing what will happen.
So for me, this is when I'm really going to try and get everything running again and maybe have some new initiatives for the business. Because what happens after any terrible event, and as much as it's terrible, you don't want to take advantage of the nature of the event.
After every event like this, the Great Depression, share crash in the 80s, the GFC -- after all of those things, there's always a big resurgence. You normally get fast growth. Businesses pop up from everyone and become extremely successful. I think Airbnb is an example of a business that came out of the GFC but is now one of the most successful businesses in the world, even though they're struggling at the moment like everyone.
So I think you've got two options, really, where you can continue to wait and see what happens or you can take charge take action. And now we're over the hump. Maybe on a little bit of the downhill section compared to what the last couple of months have been like.
I think it's time to get working. Seize those opportunities and really just get stuck in.
So no real actionable things from me today. Just that if you're feeling your sentiment about the situation start to change, maybe this might be the time to grab that motivation and then click on and move forward.
So, if you've got ideas about your business or you haven't even started a business yet -- maybe you've been in a job for 10 years and this situation has made you think that you don't want to work for someone else anymore and you want to start your own thing. Then, this is the perfect time to do it. Whether it's a business like Triathlon coaching -- there's not a lot of expenses to get going. You might have some spare time now, so it's a really good time to start.
If you've got an existing business and you've had ideas that you want to you wanted to implement before but I've never had the time, then there's probably never a better time to do it. Even though everyone's been struggling, like I was saying, at the tail end of any great problem or disaster in the world, there are always positives, and there's always growth.
So if you're in a situation, take advantage of that. I really think you should.
Anyway, thanks for listening and I'll talk to you again tomorrow.
