Years before I became a lawyer, I had KISS (“Keep It Simple Stupid”) drilled into my head in the Army. Back then it meant that I needed to forget everything else and learn how to be a soldier. Later, when life got more complicated, it meant that I had to get out of my own head and focus instead on those things that were most important and let go of those things that were out of my control. So today, as life seems very complicated and sometimes even dangerous, I come back to KISS and concentrate on those things that really are important. Like health. Without the gym to go to, I’ve been finding some innovative ways to exercise, like walking outside and communing with nature. Like connections. Even before coronavirus I knew that total isolation was a bad place. Now I wish I had had the prescience to buy Zoom stock because I am constantly using it to connect with extended family, co-workers, clients and more. Like limiting my screen time. Thinking that I needed to stay informed about COVID-19, I spent a lot of time watching the news channels. Before long, I found that too much screen time really wasn’t healthy. Now, I catch up with about a half hour broadcast at night that avoids politics like the plague. Like practicing kindness. With all the craziness in the world, it’s time to treat everyone, even those who aren’t particularly likable, with heart-felt kindness. If we can do that, we’ll all get through this together.
