We continue with Day 3 in how DISC personalities experience being quarantined personally and with those they are being quarantined together with at home? Each day we are looking at a couple of my team members, Jamie Parler and Barbara Valerioti, who wrote interesting insights to me that I want to share with you. I continue to want to emphasize that we don’t want to trivialize the situation but all of us need a smile or two these days. And with most of us confined to our homes it will be a good time to learn how people think and process through the lens of their personalities.


We are rotating each day between Jamie and Barbara and what they wrote for each DISC personality. On the 9th day, I will write and let you know my thoughts and how I have interacted as a spiker D personality with family, co-workers, friends, acquaintances, and strangers through the last few weeks. On day 10 I want to give you a few words of hope and encouragement as we go through this experience together.

Man, I kinda feel like I’ve been grounded. I mean, I get it; I get why we need to be doing this, it’s going to take some adjusting. I’m fighting the urge to not just go out and… do something or see somebody. Just because I’m confined, it doesn’t mean that I can’t do some things. Is playing golf a possibility? You’re not around a lot of people out there, right? It’s wide-open spaces out there and boy do I need that because my game right now is horrible… Glad there won’t be anyone out there to see how bad I’m playing… LOL.


I will say this, I’m not going to play alone. I got to have at least one person with me. I plan to make some new goals while we are quarantined. I have about 5 books I plan to read. I’ll keep in touch with my friends and family (all of them, often). I’ll get to watch some sports, oh, never mind. Let me hop on Facebook and Instagram and see what everyone is up to and maybe I’ll post a video of what our family is doing to keep our minds off of these crazy times. Ya’ll stay safe out there and call me if you need me.
