Epidemics like Coronavirus are probably going to become more common because of the way we live, crowded together in big cities. Ian Finney, my coach, advised me that I needed an action plan to deal with the crisis.
After a lot of thinking, we decided I needed two plans, Plan A and Plan B
Plan A was about was I did once the scare was over and preparing for relaxation of restrictions.
Plan B was using the furlough time effectively.
I am a surveyor, I go around houses and commercial buildings. Who wants a surveyor going around during an epidemic? Ian suggested I prepare for the future and I have been busily improving my websites, mastering Hootsuite, LinkedIn, Facebook and of course Professionals so that I can come out of my corner fighting.
During my downtime, I have produced a small ebook based upon a lecture I gave to for MSA Architects for their staff (before the virus outbreak ) regarding party wall issues. I am happy to let you have a copy if you respond. email@example.com
If you need someone to send out your party wall notices or deal with party wall issues on your projects, I would be pleased to offer advice/ deal with party wall awards.
I’m lucky, I suppose because I have a Plan B. I am a part-time author and have written both technical books and novels. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Andrew-R.-Williams/e/B001HPK7KK
During downtime, I have completed one novel and sent it to my Beta reader / private Editor, Emma Hutt for editing. I am now on with my fourth novel.
So what is my advice, get some coaching, (details below). See if you have a Plan A and B and use the time usefully.
