Set of Choices… A
1. Enjoy this time to the fullest. Chill. Relax. Sleep.
2. Devour/watch your social media feed every minute to know what’s happening around.
3. Keep a tab on the number of positive COVID-19 cases, casualties. Every hour. Everywhere.
4. Watch plays, shows and movies all day. Netflix, Prime Video, HBO galore…
5. Watch TV (news) all day.
6. All day Whatsapp? (do I need to say anything further?)
7. Worry about tomorrow (ab kya hoga). What if this is never over. What will happen to my job? Business? Family?

When all of this is over, the size of the pie will get smaller. The person who survives the new world will be the person with a better mindset & maximum number of useful skills.
Are you that person?
There can be hundreds of excuses, but remember, the choice will always be yours!
Inshallah, we will all pass through this pandemic unscathed – or with minimum losses.
