My Post-COVID Plan for Life 2.0

The COVID crisis shook my worldview, my confidence in the mightiest country, my resources, my entire life going forward. Is yours changed too? 🕊️

If something bad happens in Rocklin, California — like a fire, earthquake, or even a civil unrest, we’ll quickly move to a safe place on the planet and then deal with it. At least, that’s what my wife, and I talked about laughingly while watching many episodes of a popular TV series — Doomsday Preppers — on Netflix. We laughed at all these crazy people — ranging from blue-color workers to medical doctors — spending their hard earned resources on imaginary doomsday events that would never come true! We were so wrong!

Post COVID-19, life for me won’t be the same. A new normal is at play. We must adapt or die.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

🌿 Develop biological security & preparation

💰Diversify income and investments

Being the Global E-commerce Architect of my company’s multi-national e-commerce platform, I am already moving forward with partnerships to build a portfolio of e-commerce solutions in food, health, and delivery services in the next 12–24 months.

🙏 Serve local communities

I build this tool for myself and shared it with my neighbors, and it was well received. It was so liked by my community that people started sharing it with others and eventually this local effort got nation wide traffic and attention.

🌐 Build a sizeable virtual community

For example, this weekend I might release a video about how to protect your cell phone and key fobs while going out about during viral infection season with a household low-tech solution.

What is your plan for POST-COVID life?
