How Can I Stay Curious In Times of Uncertainty? Why Should We Pause More Now Than Ever?

Hi friends. Excited to share my weekly learnings with you. This week I interviewed 19 friends from 7 countries and from 10 states in the USA. I hope this inspires you to stay positive and creative. All recordings were between March 22-28, 2020. ==================================================================== "Creativity takes courage" - Henri Matisse ==================================================================== Our mindset is powerful. It chooses how to see every situation with a "glass-half-full" and limitless thinking. I was curious. In 2020, when the coronavirus impacted all our lives and crushed many of our initial plans, I sought out to learn what good we can learn from this event. How do we stay positive? How can this be a blessing in disguise? How do you make the most out of it? What can you do to not forget the lessons we learn now? I asked a few friends over virtual coffee. I hope this inspires more positivity and creativity in your day. Thank you, friends, for sharing your story. - with courage and love - Monica Kang ==================================================================== I will be sharing more stories each week to inspire how unlock creative mindset regardless of where we are.
