Who Won The Week? 09/13/2020

10CC3057-4EEA-4C80-B8C1-700C0FC6C906It’s time for another Who Won the Week prompt. The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

This week’s Who Won the Week winner may seem to most of you to be an odd choice. Nonetheless, I’m selecting the coronavirus quarantine as the winner. Why, you ask. Well, let me explain.Survey SaysA recent survey of 2,000 Americans over age 21 found that two-thirds said the pandemic quarantine has made them a better person.

The results found that the quarantine has changed Americans’ outlook on life. The survey revealed that 55% of respondents were a bit embarrassed by some of the things they valued pre-quarantine, and the many months spent at home gave 70% a chance to learn more about themselves.

Some respondents gained the time and flexibility to delve into new hobbies and discover new passions. Many respondents say that they plan to continue those hobbies once quarantine is over.

This opportunity to explore personal interests beyond work has led 27% of respondents to indicate they are hoping to achieve a better work/life balance coming out of quarantine.

Being close to the people they care about was a major theme for respondents, as 46% want to spend more quality time with friends and family, and 38% plan to create more meaningful relationships with those around them.

Bottom line, Americans seem to be coming out of this quarantine feeling, despite the hardships, that they are better people. And that’s why the coronavirus quarantine is my pick this week for Who Won the Week.

Now it’s your turn. Who (or what) do you think won the week?

    Good news for some of us. Where I draw the line is that we should NOT expect folks to do better, they are just lucky enough to survive.

    I don’t think that republicans are susceptible to the coronavirus, as they never wear masks or practice social distancing at the Trump rallies.

      They are probably getting secret vaccines available only to Trump supporters.

      3600+ new cases a day have to come from somewhere other than frat parties …

    It is hard to “like” that the virus is a winner this week, but I do see your point.
