SDN EP 122: Five Good Things To Come Out of the Pandemic

Spread the love

What silver linings came out of the COVID-19 pandemic for you? In the past two years, we've dealt with so many negative things, yet as we choose to see the positive aspects, we realize that there's good to be found in a bad situation.

Tune in to learn more ? watch the full episode of Stop Doing NothingFive Good Things To Come Out of the Pandemic with Patrick Allmond.

What You Will Discover:

#1: We became more independent and learned some new skills.

Many people drive to and from work every day, almost living on the highway. The global crisis has given us a liberation of sorts — that there's a way we can make money that is not dependent on our physical location. Learning a new skill or starting a side business doing the things that we love also taught us how it's not really required to spend the 9 to 5 in a cubicle or a conference room.


#2: We became better at technology. People like my mom and the others who consider themselves "technophobes" suddenly had to take advantage of their devices. Companies like Apple, Samsung, Dell and Microsoft have been making technology better and better for us over the years to make our lives easier, and they drop in cool features, which we use sometimes. But all of a sudden, we had to use those features more. So my mom had to learn how to buy our groceries and make video calls. We were forced to learn to do things that were just optional before.


#3 Companies, governmental organizations and service providers got better at delivering solutions. Those that dabble in the world of online ordering and product delivery had to get good, really fast, and everything you needed was delivered to your doorstep every single day. What used to be just a convenient option became necessities.


#4 People became a little bit nicer and more understanding towards each other. We're all going through some stressful things, and as people were able to take a deep breath, everyone has had a sense that if it's just hard for me, it's as difficult for everyone else.


#5 Technology-savvy people become rock stars. At the beginning of 2020, I dumped a good chunk of money to make a decent home studio. (I know you may have done so, too!) I noticed that many asked about the skills I have. I would be on Zoom calls with other entrepreneurs, professional speakers and other people working from home, and I would get asked a lot of times: 

  • How do I have good looking Zoom calls?
  • How do I share documents?
  • How do I collaborate on spreadsheets and word documents remotely?
  • How do I share my screen so I can do remote training?
  • How can I stand up and wear a microphone to teach the group of 50 people from my home office?

Suddenly there was a lot of demand for people like me who were really good at technology. Since 2020 it has become our time to shine. Suddenly, we became educators of technology and showed people how they could do things online.

SDN EP 121: How To Survive The Pandemic Blues

Spread the love

As the end of the pandemic becomes more uncertain, that doesn’t mean normal life has to stop. A mindset shift and a little bit of self-care can go a long way to lessen its negative impact on your life.

Tune in to learn more ? watch the full episode of Stop Doing NothingHow to Survive the Pandemic Blues with Patrick Allmond.

What You Will Discover:

?? Are you constantly worrying about the pandemic? Remember: major life events don’t have a definitive endpoint. Taking responsibility by practicing social spacing and getting vaccinated is the first step to positively accepting the new normal.

?? Pay attention to what is happening. We often overthink and assume everything will turn into a disaster, but once we observe and allow it to happen to us, we realize it isn’t that big of a deal. Don’t forget that we’re living in the most convenient time in our world’s history.

?? Safely return to a level of normalcy in your life as soon as possible. Whether it’s getting a coffee or going for a run, there is a way to continue doing the things you love while protecting yourself. Wear a mask and ease back into your social and outdoor habits.

?? Now is the best time to start a side hustle. Or a career change. Working from home has afforded us more free time and flexibility. If you’re bored or want something different, become an entrepreneur.

?? If working remotely is working best for you, talk to your boss. Find a position wherein you can make money using your brain. Think of how you can contribute to your company with your ideas and thoughts.

??Get through by spending more time with family. In these difficult times, you either stay afraid or come out with stronger, better relationships. Getting sick seems inevitable, but your loved ones need you now more than ever.

SDN EP 115: Feeling Stuck In Life? Why Every Leader Has Been In Your Shoes

Spread the love

Are you stuck ? bored ? and have nothing to do?

These are some of the worst things in life that can possibly hit you and turn into a perpetual downhill spiral that will suck you up.

In this episode, glean ideas and tips to recognize when you're in this situation and how to get out of a rut, master your mind and become the person you want to be.

What You Will Discover:

?? Why boredom can be a result of a lack of purpose or aim in life. Almost often, purpose is not taught in school. This is something you discover on your own as you live a couple of decades on this planet.

?? Pick one problem and dedicate your life and your time to solving it. Then, obsess on finding solutions that will make somebody's life better. Doing so will keep you motivated and push you forward to work on a mission bigger than you are.

?? Get out of your regular environment to spur some creativity. So if every single day you are staying in the same place, decide to go somewhere. You don't need a big budget to fly across the country, but you can drive twenty minutes across your city and find a coffee shop there. Just change your environment up, and your mental environment also changes.

?? Start planning on your giant, hairy dreams. Life can only progress or regress. A leader with ambitions will never allow life to run on autopilot. So don't sit in the boat of life and let the ocean push you around.

?? Decide what you want your legacy to look like. Then, think of the years down the line after you die; what do you want people to remember you for? What do you want people to say at the podium when you pass away? Ponder on this, and you will be directed in your every step and action.

?? Aspire to teach. What we learn and improve upon, we have an obligation to pass that on to future generations. So dig deeper, and you'll realize pretty fast that you have a lot of knowledge in your brain. Teach the younger generation to use your voice for good.

?? Better your best. Getting outside of your comfort zone physically, mentally, psychologically, and emotionally pushes you to adapt and get better. You wouldn't have time to be bored and stuck. Instead, aspire for bigger and better things in life.

SDN EP: 113 – Swagger – How To Become Everything You Want With Leslie Ehm

Spread the love

Waiting for a thousand dollars to drop into your lap while lying in bed? Without a doubt, everyone would want that fantasy to turn into reality, but obviously, it's not going to happen if you don't work it out.  HOW? -- that the question.

You don't come into this world knowing what there is to know about achieving your goals. Many people don't have any idea what they want in life.  So, how can you "manifest" or bring good fortune and opportunities into your life? The nearest parking spot, the closing contract, the ideal spouse, etc. 

Successful individuals have developed a method for noticing and using conditions and resources to accomplish their goals faster, and that is to be a SWAGGER -- not the typical one, though.

Save the date, mark it on your calendars and never miss this life-changing episode of Stop Doing Nothing. We’ll touch base on How To Become Everything You Want, and we have no other than SWAGGER coach, author, and speaker, Leslie Ehm.

Key takeaways in this episode:

?? Swagger is manifesting who you are and holding on to it in the face of all the psychological crap, regardless of the situation or environment. As you build your swagger, people recognize that you are unshakable, unmovable in your sense of self.

?? Recognize that there's no one prescribed way of manifesting a swagger. There's no one way of showing up like anybody's swagger—what matters is it's real.

?? The key is not about glossy perfection in any way, shape, or form. It's being a perfectly imperfect, flawed human badass.

?? Understand that self-belief is way different than confidence. It's the difference between success and failure. The self-belief that doesn't rely on confidence is like jumping off the cliff, you take these risks and learn all this new stuff, but you're not going to die.

?? Live by the paradigm that we don't pick up other people's baggage at the airport, why do we pick it up in life? Stop looking for all of your validation to come from other people.

?? Remember that you only have one face. You don't show up as a different person in different situations or environments. Once you accept that that's self-acceptance, then you're not so busy trying to cover it up.


About Leslie Ehm:

Leslie Ehm is a Swagger Coach, training guru, speaker, and author who's helped thousands of professionals discover and unleash their unique brand of swagger - and finds success just by being who they really are.

Leslie's been called "better than therapy," "a rock star," "ass-kicking," "a force of nature" and even "a witch" —and she's there for ALL of it.
