During the time of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the entire world, the economy falling out of hands, and thousands of other problems, the nationwide lockdown has somehow made us much more productive. During the quarantine period many people undertook various tasks and some even went outside their comfort zone and tried to polish their hobbies. This lockdown has not only pushed us to realize the importance of patience but also has made us a better listener. Moreover, it made us realize our potential and the capability of doing much more than we expect from ourselves. “The time flies, but the good news is that you're the pilot,” this beautiful quote emphasizes the very importance of time management.
Personally, the lockdown has given me enough time to understand my strong points and it has given me a clear visual of what I want to do in life. Out of the busy city life this precious time has given us the opportunity to discover a new part of ourselves.
“Confined, but no broken”. Amidst the lockdown, the schools and colleges are depending on the online modes of education in order to maintain continuity of studies. Educational institutions are conducting classes over platforms like zoom, blackboard, Microsoft teams among others, demonstrating that that there is no obstruction in the process of learning.
This time is indeed difficult for everyone but if you look at the brighter side, it is a great chance to introspect and identify areas of improvement in our day to day lives, hence making a better version of ourselves.
