Who would have thought that a virus would accelerate the digitalization of millions of people and companies at the same time?
As a yoga teacher, I had mostly seen myself teaching in the real world with real people. Within a couple of days, though, I had to totally reconsider my plan. The government has called us to stay at home in order to protect the most vulnerable of us: the ederly people.
Some companies weren’t really prepared for it. But they could quickly catch up, because the technics and the world were ready for it. A big part of the population is now working from home and having meetings online.
What does this mean for me? If I want to survive as an entrepreneur, I have to go with the flow. I am converting my workshops into online-sessions and sharing videos and audios on different canals. I am thinking about new forms of collaboration and how to introduce them to people. I am also offering my support to those who are overwhelmed or scared about the new situation.
And I am not the only one. All around the world, I see people supporting each others and offering their help to those who need it. I see people working on solutions to provide food and love to the isolated ones.
Two weeks ago, I wished me and the world more love, compassion and solidarity. This has already become reality. Now, I wish me and the world that this will allow us to overcome the crisis that has been there for a very long time. Stay connected. At the end, everything will be okay. And if this isn’t okay, this isn’t the end yet.
