I’m writing to a specific group of people out there. Those whose entire plans, events, publishing calendars, and not to mention lives, have now shifted to a crazy force of movement due to the pandemic. I’m talking about my fellow communicators in the different spheres of society.
I’ll be celebrating my fifth work anniversary in the ministry. As I look back on my time here, I’ve listed down five things I’ve learned that can be applied in life and work (whether you work in the ministry or the marketplace).
It is in times like this that hit me hard, like really hard in the gut, with a reality that I always try to avoid (but obviously can’t)—and it is the truth that we are not in control.
Change reveals so much of who we really are. And if we paused every once in a while, we will see that who we are now is so different from who we were last year. Arguably, maybe even the person we were yesterday.
Next week will be a new year. The holidays will finally come to an end. You will probably have relatives and friends who will be going back to where they really live by then. Or perhaps you will be the one leaving in this scenario.
