Zoom Fatigue? Here’s How To Avoid Becoming Lunch For The Competition

Zoom Fatigue? Here’s How To Avoid Becoming Lunch For The Competition

Call it a hunch but I imagine as you begin this new “work week,” many of you are familiar with this kind of morning ritual: Wake up… Get dressed from the waist up… Then sit and Zoom through a morning meeting mocked by the need for an extra cup of coffee. Let’s face it, our lives have resembled a 2020 version of the movie Groundhog’s Day where the role of Bill Murray has been replaced by the swivel chair in our home office, and the redundancy of a daily commute from the bedroom to a converted guest room. The initial 2-week COVID lockdown back in March to “flatten the curve” has seen its shadow and turned into 6 months of Zoom fatigue. So what are you doing to push through?

The Rush To Reopen: Impatience Disguised As Enthusiasm

The Rush To Reopen: Impatience Disguised As Enthusiasm

If you love the games let’s not push the players.

I love live sports. I crave the sights and sounds of competition. And I can’t stand to watch another replay of the 2017 American Cornhole League Championships. In fact, it’s been so long since I watched sports, I will need to retrain my fingers to find ESPN on the TV remote. But as we enthusiastically hope for the chance to fill up the stadiums and arenas again without the trusty masks and gloves, we must make sure we’re doing the right thing. We must make sure that our enthusiasm isn’t merely impatience.

Every Win Is Worth So Much More: How To Deal With The Pressure Of A Shortened “Season”

Every Win Is Worth So Much More: How To Deal With The Pressure Of A Shortened Season

More than 4-million people savored the chance Thursday to watch live sports as Major League Baseball’s opening night of a coronavirus-condensed season quickly became the most-watched baseball telecast in the last nine years. I delighted in reuniting my tv remote with ESPN—one of the millions who enjoyed finding something other than the American Cornhole Championships or the Drone Racing League broadcasts that had been featured in the absence of professional sports over the past 4-5 months. Nothing replaces the thrill of gameday.

Open Up To Learn Lessons: How You Can Help When The Times Are Turbulent

Open Up To Learn Lessons: How You Can Help When The Times Are Turbulent

Most of my Sunday mornings consist of family, faith, and reflection – there’s occasionally a morning car ride to pick up brunch for my wife and kids. But, this time, when I pulled back into the driveway and parked the car at my own home, I couldn’t leave the driver’s seat. Sports talk radio is my guilty pleasure and this particular Sunday morning featured an interview with a college basketball coach named LeVelle Moton. The 45-year-old has won 207 games in 11 seasons as head coach at North Carolina Central University—they’ve won their last 3 conference tournament titles.
