The current environment has made all of us re-evaluate how we live, work and play. If someone had said to you 12 months ago that we would be working from home, our kids would be educated online and social interaction would be virtually nonexistent, you would have laughed at them. No-one could have predicted this scenario.
Like all changes in life, there are positives and negatives. My son is studying (sometimes) for his HSC. This change has led to a number of year 12 events being cancelled. These are things that he’s worked towards for 12 years and he won’t get them back, ever. Then of course, there is the HSC itself, a moving feast that is rescheduled on daily basis. How do you mentally prepare for exams that may dictate all future life decisions, when you can’t have any confidence about what form the exams will be or when the exams will be? What’s the positive then? He’s healthy, he’s smart (I’d be happier if he studied more!) and he’s resilient. Being able to ‘roll with the punches’ is an important life skill.
So how has the change in life, changed your life? If you’re at home trying to work, whilst you’re partner is trying to work, whilst the kids are wanting to be entertained, then maybe you’re thinking that it’s about time to look more closely at those renovations that you’ve been putting off. Or maybe it is time for that sea change.
If you are a developer and you’re looking at bigger opportunities, now is a time when sites are becoming available and will continue to become available. It’s important to not let those opportunities pass you by.
Positivity and resilience.Whilst we don’t know what the future holds, it is important to always be optimistic.
For us that translates into entering our projects into award programs, has led to us being engaged on some exciting new projects and to us hiring new staff. Well old staff really, we’re very happy that Elise is coming back on board with RED BLUE!!
Whatever your aspirations, we’re here to help provide you with the most positive experience.
