Stop

Because I’m a giver. I’m going to tell you something. In case you’re ever lost in the woods or in the wilderness, learn this one thing. Stop, Think, Observe, Plan, and you’re thinking, well, what does that have to do with anything?

The third thing is because of the quarantine, many people are for the first time at home and working and they’re not doing really well. I’ve been home except for two trips to the grocery store for 20 days. And I’ve worked at home for probably the last 10 or 15 years. So I understand working at home.
