In this episode, we’re talking about a new kind of SEO. You may be familiar with with Search Engine Optimization, but today we’re talking about the SEO that will allow you to be your most effective during the covid-19 crisis: Sacrifice, Empathy, and Optimism.
- Sacrifice – While this word has taken on a lot of negative connotations in our convenience culture, sacrifice is really just giving up something for the sake of something else. When we make intentional sacrifice for something that is meaningful to us, not only is the sacrifice more meaningful, it is also easier to make. Can you re-frame the hardships you are enduring now, as sacrifices that are worth making for the sake of others?
- Empathy – One way to ensure that we know our sacrifice is meaningful, is to become more empathetic. While it is very easy to become selfish and self-focussed during times like these, if we become more empathetic, we will better connect with the pain that other are experiencing and be more willing to take action to help.
- Optimism – It is very easy to be negative right now. If you are struggling with depression and anxiety, please reach out for professional support. It is normal, and getting help can make a big difference. But if you are not clinically depressed, but just feeling down because of all of the negativity around you, take matters into your own hands. Nurture positivity. Fill your mind with information about what is going well right now. Seek out opportunities – they always exist in times of great change. We need optimistic people now more than ever before.
