My 4 P’s to Success During COVID-19

Practice patience scrabble tiles spelling out PATIENCE.

Patience – the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.

Persistence – firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

Perseverance – doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

Positive – with no possibility of doubt; clear and definite.

Positive energy message with flowers.

On Friday, 3/27/2020 because of COVID-19, I was laid off with 28 other people with a company that I had given all that I had for 11 1/2 years. Through no fault of my own, nor theirs…I am in uncharted territory that I have not been in for over a decade. Hell, we are all in uncharted territory that we have never experienced.

I was upset for a short period of time. Not at my employer but because the work I did changed lives. Not as in life saving, but I helped other companies market their brand which helped the economy. The economy that has collapsed due to this silent deadly killer.

For the past 4 days, I have been trying to file for unemployment benefits. I feel like Bill Murray in “Ground Hog Day”. I have been booted out of the system just when I get past where I left off, but find I have to start over from the beginning once I finally, after many attempts, get logged back on. I don’t know how many times I had to start over and over and over.

I have practiced my 4 P’s to success during COVID-19 and after 12 hours, 52 minutes, 35 seconds, and a few tears of frustration, I have persevered and have successfully filed my claim. I couldn’t have done this if I had not been persistent and chose to give up instead. Woop Woop!

Now, I have an opportunity to do something that I have been yearning to do for over 20 years…write my novel. I have started character development and am in the process of putting the story and plot together. More to come on that. So, I want to encourage you to follow my 4 P’s to success in whatever it is you are doing during this horrible time in world history. I pray for everyone to be safe!

  1. Neat advice, Lisa. Much like my years-long Triple P (Practice Persistent Patience) and Triple P with
    Double B (Practice Persistent Patience With Bon-Bons) mantras. 🙂
