Instead of posting a normal Five Minute Friday episode, my team and I thought it best to do a special episode on the coronavirus — not to cause fear and panic but to take a moment to educate ourselves on the virus and the best methods for protection. There is so much unknown, so much fear and panic, that it can get really overwhelming — my girlfriend literally made herself sick the other night watching the news.
Instead of panicking, we should be focusing on what we can do to prevent the virus from spreading and how we can best respond to the chaos around us.
I’ve got my best friend Matthew Cesaratto in the house, and today we have a coffeehouse conversation about the coronavirus, how we should respond, and how we can all be leaders in a time of fear and crisis.
Matt begins the episode by talking about some practical ways to keep the virus from spreading (wash your hands, disinfect surfaces, increase air ventilation, etc.) All this information comes straight from the CDC website, which is a great resource you can use to educate yourself about the virus rather than just media or news outlets.
Then, I give 8 things that we should do in order to stay calm and be leaders in a time of chaos
