FIRE RANT: Another Media Covid Blitz

Once again, the media is pushing fear with the drowning coverage of the latest covid omicron variant.  Every news station is excessively covering it every news cycle.  What is weird to me is that they waited until after Thanksgiving weekend when most of the great travel and spending had been completed to suddenly have this breaking news.  Had they announced the information a day or two sooner it would have impacted businesses and other entities.  A side impact of this new variant is the realization that even if the USA or another country was 100% vaccinated the risk of covid mutations doesn’t go away completely.  Essentially, if other parts of the world aren’t vaccinated the virus can keep spreading.  The fact gives folks less reason to get vaccinated.  If we can’t get our own citizens to get vaccinated how the heck, we going to influence other countries?

TONE SETTING SUNDAY – Week of 11/28/21

I challenge you all to make at least 4 non-routine goals for the upcoming week and reference them daily.  Use them to guide your actions when you have free time.  These are my goals for the week of 11/28/21.⁠

There will be 6 goals again this week.  I will launch the U-Prayer app on Android and Apple platforms.  The costs of marketing for u-prayer.com and u-prayer app will be confirmed.  Finalize some social media maintenance.  Intermittent fast for at least 14 hours every day this week.  I will read at least one book from the Bible this week.  Lastly, I will write and record God and You Podcast Episode #23, “Get Saved or Die Lyin”.

Business 101: Share Even When You Don’t Benefit

       Continuing the conversation from last week around idea generation; this week I want to push sharing with others.  Everything we come across won’t always benefit us.  However, there is nothing wrong with passing on information, a contact, or solution that may be helpful to someone in your circle.  Heck, you may come across job openings that aren’t for your field but maybe you have a friend or someone in your network that you know is looking.  The right thing to do is send the link or lead even it if takes some effort.  You can build good will with others and maybe even learn a little about another field thru finding out what is applicable to them and what isn’t.  Same for random ideas or contacts.  There’s nothing wrong with being a middleman or center of information.  Sharing information increases your value to others and strengthens your network even if you don’t directly benefit from what you are passing along.
