We are in a worldwide pandemic (with cascading economic effects) and this can be quite unsettling and paralyzing.

To give you hope and practical advice, I've put together this Coronavirus crisis resource center to help you personally and professionally adapt and respond to the unprecedented (in our lifetimes) event we all find ourselves within.

Whether it's your family, your freelancing, or your small business, there are unique challenges faced each day. It will not be easy, but together we can navigate it more effectively.

Coronavirus Crisis Status Update: Where We As A Country Stand

The Status Of Things -->

The Severity Of The Situation

This pandemic is likely going to last a year or more. The costs will be high for human lives and the negative economic impact (there will be positive as well, especially in the long-term).

The Loss of Human Lives

Due to the severity of the virus (although not yet as severe as past pandemics) and how easy it can spread, COVID-19 has had a negative effect on the health and lives of people. And it's not just deaths, but the number of issues and deaths that comes from the overwhelmed medical system.

The Economic Costs of The Virus

As our country and others have executed virus mitigation strategies, it's also caused a drastic economic downturn and financial cost. Unemployment illustrates this well. And, while many people suspect the economic downturn of shelter-in-place, it seems the culprit is the virus and the uncertainty it brings.

Don't Fall Into The Traps!

"Where the shamers would have us submit to a monopoly on knowledge, the debunkers would have us surrender to epistemic nihilism."  Ari Schulman, The New Atlantis

The problem we must solve must address the many competing priorities of this complex situation (even as we often oversimplify it based on our biases). Sweden has not locked down, and yet their economy has been dramatically weakened on top of the much higher number of cases and deaths. There is no simple solution to this complex situation.

Where Can We Find Hope?

"I never doubted not only that I would get out, but also that I would prevail in the end and turn the experience into the defining event of my life, which in retrospect, I would not trade... You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end — which you can never afford to lose — with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be." - Admiral Jim Stockdale, Former Prisoner of War

"For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another." - Paul, the apostle - Galatians 5:13-15
