But this peak is different. It means that most of the country

That means that while maybe the whole country won’t get infected before there’s a vaccine, much of it — states, cities, towns, hamlets — will. Especially those places that still — amazingly — don’t “believe” Covid exists. Thanksgiving is America infecting itself with Covid at the highest rate of all, just before a vaccine is finally here.
America’s not going to escape, probably, without sending Covid to a newer and higher peak altogether. How high that peak is is anyone’s guess — with the following grim conditions. It’s going to be north of 200K cases and 2,000 deaths per day, likely somewhere between double and triple that number. Let me put that in perspective.
Right now, the most popular conversation starter is probably coronavirus. The same conversations, especially about stressful events can feel overwhelming. No matter who you are speaking with, you can reframe the conversation.

Some of these questions can spark stories, bring out the best in others, trigger genuine conversation … and hopefully, help you to feel more deeply connected to the people close to you or someone you haven’t seen in a while.

These are unprecedented times. “How are you doing?” may not be a great conversation starter. Whether on a video call with a friend or colleague, there are better conversation starters you can use to talk about anything but the coronavirus. Dive into a deeper dialogue connect deeper and meaningfully with the people you care about and those you work with.

“When discussion about the coronavirus comes up, use it as a springboard to steer the conversation back to the person and how he or she is adapting to this new normal,” Diane Gottsman, modern manners and etiquette expert told the New York Times.

Use this question to talk about ways to improve your lives and get over the hurdles (you control) that stand in the way of a good life. Be curious and ask reflective or follow-up questions about what they enjoy doing right now.

People love to share what they care about. Find ways to make them talk about their passion projects. Most people have an awesome side hustle and they will happily talk about the progress they are making.

You can use it to talk about the highlight of the week or day that made you feel better or relaxed. In times of crisis, we can still find the good things in life that can help us feel better. Start off your conversations by talking about the more happy events and experiences in life.

In difficult times, people can easily get stressed. Everyone deals with it differently. You can both share you how you are dealing with the dozens of things on your mind and coping mechanisms.

If that sounds dystopian to you — a country furiously infecting itself with a deadly disease just before a vaccine is available — that’s because it is. Welcome to America, my friend. This is what it means to be a failing state in 2020. A place where there’s no national plan for a pandemic because the President’s golfing, where people can’t cooperate to fight it because enough of them believe freedom is the right to spread it, where enough of them are foolish enough to travel while the pandemic’s at deadly peak, sending it to a newer, higher one, just before a vaccine is finally finished.

There are tons of ways to make a normal conversation great. Here are 7 powerful questions you can ask your friends, family and co-workers in your next conversation — whether in person or in a video conversation.So will America hit it? The good news is: probably not. There are enough sane Americans left to stop that ultimate peak of total destruction from being hit. But that’s the lowest possible bar of all, really.A country infecting itself with a lethal pandemic en masse right before a vaccine’s available is one of the strangest, most gruesome, most self-destructive things I think I’ve ever seen. After all, what a sensible person would do is…wait.
One way to change the energy from negative to positive in a conversation is to focus on the good things in life and career. An alternative question is — How are you taking care of yourself right now?
This question can help people reflect on what they want to do differently in life and career when they get the chance. You can use it to talk about life and career goals and what you can do to make that all-important change.

A country infecting itself with a lethal pandemic en masse right before a vaccine’s available is one of the strangest, most gruesome, most self-destructive things I think I’ve ever seen. After all, what a sensible person would do is…wait.It’s an alternative to “what are you doing?” This question can help the other person talk about something new they are excited about as opposed to just giving you the same update about their work or life.Many of us are spending a lot of time at home at the moment. In the golden age of streaming and remote work, you will be surprised at the things you have in common with the other person.There will be plenty to talk about when you ask this question. The other person is likely to talk about what they do on a normal weekend, what they wish they could do, and what would do on their perfect weekend. Once you know what they are into, and you’ll have plenty to talk about.These are unprecedented times. “How are you doing?” may not be a great conversation starter. Whether on a video call with a friend or colleague, there are better conversation starters you can use to talk about anything but the coronavirus. Dive into a deeper dialogue connect deeper and meaningfully with the people you care about and those you work with.
