Covid Paralysis

I have noticed a strange phenomena when I interact with people these days. There is a side effect to the Covid phenomena – paralysis of initiative.

It’s quite understandable – after all we have a justified fear of Covid, it is in our face several times a day and any new initiative will likely involve other people.

But while we focus on staying safe (keeping our distance from other people and wearing masks), we could also be thinking about how we can bring our community back together again in the coming few months.

We have a grand opportunity here. As we become vaccinated and are allowed to return to social connectedness again, we have the opportunity to redefine what community means. Are we going to go back to the way it was before Covid? Or do we want something different.

Perhaps we can think of our community not just as the place where we live, but the place where we find our meaning, social connections and mental wellbeing. Perhaps it can be the place where we know our neighbours and are prepared to be there with a helping hand, knowing they are there for us with their hand.

If this idea appeals to you, or you know someone else who has been thinking these thoughts, then please read on.

The most common reasons people do not get their ideas past ‘thinking about it’ are.

  • Too much work – haven’t got the time
  • I don’t have the skills
  • Where will I get the resources.

The Happy Community Kickstart program might be just the thing to get your idea off the ground. It will help you build a team to share the work, give you the skills and help you find the resources.
