You have the time, hone your skills, fine tune your capabilities so that when Covid-19 recedes you are on top of the game and because of that immensely marketable.

Practice. That is the secret element in this unending crisis, one that seldom gets spoken about. Keep doing what you are good at and doing more of it. Tinker, tailor, soldier, spy it doesn't matter. You have the time, hone your skills, fine tune your capabilities so that when Covid-19 recedes you are on top of the game and because of that immensely marketable. These are the people who will be the new world winners. Because they figured out that this downtime is perfect for stepping up and getting better by the day. When you are on the 9 to 5 treadmill and spending hours travelling and more of that waiting and waiting and waiting you simply stay static with your skill set. No time to give it a sheen.
If you are a writer write twice as much. A banker, learn a new relevant fiscal technique. A sales executive, turn push to shove. In business, well go on then find new ways to make music. Look at the medical profession, they themselves will tell you that forced practice has made them so much better at their dispensation of medicine. They are a perfect example of sweet being the uses of adversity.
Just because you are home-bound do not get rusty. It is easy to slough off and take short cuts and enjoy the moaning and groaning and allow your talents to atrophy. You do that you will spend the tomorrows catching up... not leading the field. That discipline comes from within...no one can order it.
