Do What You Can Today

There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world today. There are unknowns about what will happen at the end of this week, let alone this month, or this year.

But just because we are going through a period of change, doesn’t mean you can’t use this time to your benefit and to the benefit of others. It’s time to think of what you can do today to step up and be a leader.

Everyone is struggling right now, whether it’s because of lost income, cancelled travel, child care, or something else. Ask yourself, what can you do to help them out? How can you use this time wisely?

Personally, explore what new books you can read and what new podcasts you can listen to. Perhaps you can develop new skills, or start that side hustle you’ve always wanted.

Every missed opportunity presents a space that new opportunities can fill. It’s up to you to be in the right mindset to take advantage of that.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Think of creative ways to support others
  • Change missed opportunities into new opportunities
  • Be a voice of positivity
  • Make the most of a different situation
  • Use your time wisely


“The current state of things, the shape, the chaos, and most importantly, the unknown, has given us the opportunity to step up as leaders, to step up as competitors, and to set an example.” -Jake Thompson

“A leader does what they can until they can do what they want.” -Jake Thompson

“Just because you can’t do exactly what you want to do today, this week, this month, shouldn’t derail you from doing something, helping out where you can, not contributing to the overwhelming disinformation and negativity out there.”

Jake Thompson

“There are thousands of things going on right now that are outside of your control, but the four that always are, are: what attitude you choose, what actions you take, what efforts you give, and where you choose to focus. Those are your controllables.” -Jake Thompson

“I hope you’ll use this opportunity in the midst of chaos and uncertainty and fear to be the leader that other people need right now.”
