Welcome to BYU Andrew!
The term "social distancing" is unfortunate. Should be physical distancing, and social connection!
as one over 65, I appreciate concern for our welfare, but also feel somewhat like a marginalized group.
Really tough Ron, I know many who have felt that too
What are some of the decisions you are facing in your work and life?
How much longer do I want to work overall. The drops in the stock market may have pushed that out further
How to serve in my Church calling when we have physical distancing restrictions.
I am going to fly to North Carolina, carefully, to celebrate our family together as planned last year
How to stay positive and not feel paralyzed by the negative going on around us.
We are in this together, but we're having such different experiences. I am dealing, almost daily, with friends and family members who are feeling judged for their choices to maintain distance and wear masks. They call or text with anger or in tears. They don't want to have to explain their own underlying health conditions to acquaintances or strangers. One was mockingly videoed by a man (yesterday) at Walmart, because she was wearing a mask.
uncertainty as to what choice to make
"What is a dilemma?"
"What are some dilemmas you face?"
Working with children at home. It's impossible to be a present parent and present employee at the same time.
Working from home and establishing boundaries
Selling to clients who are cutting budgets or shutting down the business
speaking up vs staying quiet: Work situation where you feel something is unjust, but speaking up could affect your job or others perspective of you.
It has been a dilemma whether to continue with our plans for a long planned family gathering with the real pros and cons
SPACE: Sense, Pause, Ask, Choose and Engage
Can't hear it
It's quiet, but coming through
each person can turn up their own volume....
"Can you sense it?"
"How do you experience distress?"
Intuition or Holy Ghost helps to discern.
If we can be still long enough to experience the silence within then we can sense the prompting of Holy Ghost.
Very true Reza
Thank you Kristina.
Yea, rider and elephant - Jonathan Haidt!

"The Paradox of Choice" - Barry Schwartz
what is my intent?
Barry, you have learned by now that your wife is always right.
I think you nailed it Stephen ; )
"What choice brings you peace?"
Make your decision right.
Can I face my maker with a clear conscious.
He said, "I'll fight but..." what was the rest of the sentence?
At work I've encouraged the owners (who are good Catholics, greatly respect the Church and have made many right decisions to help the company to be successful) that their future success is likely going to be determined by whether they make not just right choices, but righteous choices.
Good stuff - thanks for your insights & thoughts!
