The biggest thing we lose when we have no community is accountability. Accountability is what drives us to actually get things done. It drives us to be better, serve our customers and stay engaged with what is happening in our communities.
If we lose community, we lose everything. It is why isolation as a punishment is so brutal mentally and eventually physically. Worst of all, with no community, you lose accountability.
Don’t let these times of isolation keep you down and keep you apart, figuratively speaking of course. Use these moments to create and bring people safely together. Here are some examples of what I have done that you could absolutely do. I have created content (Which you can subscribe to by clicking this link) which comes out weekly where I share fresh ideas on engaging and serving your customers and community. I have created simple workout videos for those of us now working from home. I have invited folks in my network to pray for their countries every Friday at 9:30PM.
Don’t lose your community because when you do, you lose your accountability and your purpose. Reach out to others and create, and even if only a handful of people join you on that journey, it will be worth it for everyone involved.
