How to succeed during coronavirus self-quarantine: Alexander Pushkin, Isaac Newton, and you

Now almost all countries of the world are in quarantine in connection with the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). However, do not lose heart. You must strictly adhere to the quarantine rules and finally do everything you planned to do before but never had time for.

The Great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and the outstanding English physicist Isaac Newton were also forced to quarantine for some time. Look what came of it.

Alexander Pushkin, cholera and quarantine

In 1830, Alexander Pushkin, while preparing for the wedding, briefly stopped in financial matters at his family country seat Boldino. A sudden outbreak of cholera and quarantine locked the poet in the wilderness for over three months.

It became the most striking and fruitful period in Pushkin’s creative work. In unexpected quarantine seclusion, the poet felt an unprecedented surge of inspiration, mastered new genres and literary forms, and as a result wrote an incredible amount of his remarkable prose and poetry.

Isaac Newton, Plague, and Quarantine

In 1665, Isaac Newton was forced to leave Cambridge and returned home. The reason for this was the quarantine during the outbreak of the plague in England. Deprived of the opportunity to teach and communicate with colleagues while in isolation, Newton went much deeper into scientific research. It was then that he discovered the Law of universal gravitation and wrote many scientific papers, which have retained their relevance in our days.

To crown it all

Any crisis is not only difficulties and a huge inconvenience. It is an amazing period when windows of opportunities are actively opening. Strange as it may seem, it is the best time for new ideas and discoveries, creative breakthroughs and insights.

Right now, during quarantine, we can get all these “I`ll do it later” from the far shelves of the subconscious – I’ll write, read, finish, look, try, create … later.  You can waste this time in rubbish, panic, and depression. But you can direct your energy to the embodiment of what will become a new step in your life.

So, self-quarantine, self-educate, and do not panic! Everything will be great!
