“Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'”-Bob Dylan

Our times they are a changing. Our jobs, our profession, the healthcare environment they are a changing. With Covid-19, the times they are a changing.

However, working together, with kindness and understanding for each other and dedication to our profession, we will weather the storm.

This year has been an incredibly stressful time for everyone. Some people are able to adapt to the changing stress levels and welcome the challenges. Others struggle. We should all keep a watchful eye on our friends, family and coworkers. If anyone struggles, be there for them. Help them in their time of need.

“Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”-Proverbs 27:17

This proverb has many meanings and can be applicable to many times in our lives.

It can be applied to relationships. Making each other sharper and stronger. Constant improvement.

It can be applied to accountability. Allowing others to see our weaknesses for improvement.

It can be applied to motivation. We all have the drive to succeed and to improve.

It can be applied to willingness. We must allow our friends and family to feel comfortable to show us where we may need to improve.

All of these help us to become better people. Don’t give up because times are tough. Rise above. Keep pushing forward. Fight the good fight. This storm will eventually pass. Surviving is only part of your journey. Thriving afterward is equally important.

With our challenges, we have accomplished several things for ASATT membership.

We have approved the first regional educational webinar.

All regional directors will have at least one webinar per region.
