Today’s coping tip is to take a different route today and see what you notice.
I’ve had this tip come up a few times and each time I’ve enjoyed looking at the world from a different perspective. I tend to follow the same 4-5 routes over and over, often playing the “how-little-energy-can-I-use-in-the-Tesla” game.
Today I took a new route to coaching practice. I’ve gone this way a few times, but almost never, so I decided to follow along and see what I’d see. In this case, I’m leaving Parker and heading near Centennial Airport in Colorado, but rather than my normal Parker Road to Bronco’s Parkway, I turned off early, went between a few neighborhoods and then threaded through a bunch of new commercial/industrial construction around there.
What I was amazed with was the amount of new construction. I’d seen some new buildings from my normal route, but driving through there it looks like a tremendous amount of new buildings, especially warehouses, being built in a large area that used to be open fields.
Good and bad, but something I noticed for sure.
I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQL Server Central newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
