Have you ever heard the phrase “Keep Calm and Carry On”? It was featured on a propaganda poster in Britain during World War II with the purpose of giving people hope after being under air raid attacks. The poster was forgotten about for years but has been recently rediscovered and reissued. People around the world consider “Keep Calm and Carry On” to be an inspiring and cheeky motto during these tough economic times, and there are now many variations on the theme.
I have felt very inspired by the Keep Calm movement myself, because I think that it’s something I need to work on. I have poor stress management skills, and I’m easily overwhelmed. If I can remember to Keep Calm and do whatever I need to do, it makes my life more productive and happier. Maybe I need a Keep Calm and Write Quizzes poster in my office 🙂
I’m not surprised that the world (including myself) has latched on to the Keep Calm mottos lately. I feel like things aren’t great for a lot of us economically, and it’s sometimes hard to keep going with the daily grind. I love the feeling that we’re all working on improving the world and our lives together in small ways. Many of you on this blog inspire me with your stories of going back to school, working hard, following your dreams, and / or raising a family 🙂
Recently I came across a collection of these Keep Calm variation images by an independent artist, and I knew that I had to theme a quiz around it. I figure we could all use a little reminder to Keep Calm during tough times, and I thought it would be fun to write a quiz that includes what else you’re supposed to do. Here it is: What Should You Keep Calm and Do?
Take What Should You Keep Calm and Do? and let me know what you get. Does it sound about right to you? How do you dig deep when times are tough?
