As the stranger than fiction 2020 coronavirus plays out around us I want to take a minute to voice my opinion about the current state of our industry.
I have seen so much good being done by law firms and individuals alike, trying to help heal their community. This is wonderful to see how people are stepping up to make a difference, not thinking about themselves but instead their communities. That is what real leaders do.
This is not a time to get ahead this is a time to pull together. This is a time where the strength of our collective efforts will win the day. This is the time where you embrace your fellow competitor in your local market and see what you guys can do together for the greater good. This is the time were you help your competitor if they are struggling. This is a time to start a new chapter – a better chapter – where you form real relationships with your local or national competitors and find out that you guys are stronger together and you can help each other and grow together.
Whereas our real life meeting point was always MTMP two times a year, now it is weekly with MTMP Connect leading the way. We still miss the social aspect however where we see each other and we chat about what is going on but for that part we just have to pick up the phone or setup zoom meetings to see each other.
We will get though this, think about your people, your local community and your national community. Think about where you can make a difference.
Advertising and getting more cases will be there when all this is over but for right now we have to get though this and come out the other side without loosing any of our friends.
Please remember and pray for the 90,000 people and their families we have lost to this virus and take just a minute out of your day to think about them and their family.
