“Every lesson puts me in a cosy corner of myself that I didn't even know I had.”
— Lee Cohen
Change is a verb!
Ultimately, the universe supports action. Without a conscious effort to be different and to do things differently, nothing will change.
In 2018, Trevor Waller wrote a book called ‘The Lessons’ for his beloved niece who was relocating abroad after finishing high school. It contained 22 ‘lessons for life’ – things Trevor had taught her along the way, and that he wanted his niece to carry with her.
When a twenty-one-day lockdown was announced in South Africa in response to Covid-19, Trevor realised that he had a lesson for each day (plus one extra). He decided to post a lesson a day, with a little Covid-19 ‘twist’, on Facebook. The feedback was so overwhelmingly positive and encouraging that Trevor turned the posts into a blog and then into a book. Originally titled “22 Lessons for Corona Time & After”, the book, now in its third edition, is Trevor’s take on living with meaning and purpose.
Together with Trevor’s personal stories, wisdom and wit, Twenty-two Lessons for Now provides a way to survive and thrive in the post-Covid world. Now more than ever, we need to get creative, resourceful and, most importantly, embrace new ways of being, doing and having.
