The Opportunity During This Adversity

If time is utilized justly, any person can accomplish exceptional heights. Time is the only thing people complain about not having enough of. Because of the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is indeed, the only thing that we have in abundance right now as no time is wasted in transportation and travel. We have got a substantial opportunity right in front of us. This invaluable time can be used in spending time with our families and trying to understand them better which we could never have otherwise done because of our fast-paced lives. Our newly found time can also be used to learn new skills. Whether it is trying to cook exotic dishes, developing a reading habit, or learning to play an instrument or speak a new language, our precious time should get utilized in procuring skills that will prove to be useful in the future.  Another crucial opportunity we have is of getting well adept in the use of modern technology, especially computers. Virtual school classes and the work from home scenario has necessitated it for a majority of us to use new gadgets and become proficient with their use. “Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat”. We do not know what the future beholds for us, in such times; learning to see an opportunity during every adversity is of foremost importance. For it is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive, but those who can best manage the change.
