What If

2020 is coming to an end.
It has been hard, heartbreaking and a huge lesson all at the same time.

Seeing what risks and closures of businesses are happening daily, I have thought hard about some what ifs:

  1. What if we are on a bridge to a different way of living and doing business?
  2. What if all the brilliant minds on the planet can come together and change what we grasp as normal?
  3. What if everything we think we know is about to change?

All these what ifs came to mind, because I found myself thinking about past generations.
A mere 25 years ago, we did not have widespread internet, video conferencing, social media. Imagine if this horrid pandemic had struck then.
Now we can “see” people we work with and family members daily and free of charge.
We are walking through a portal that might be the brink of a different life.

Horse carriages to cars.
Ships to airplanes.
Fire to stoves.
Typewriters to computers.

Just think about this. Maybe what we take for granted now will change. Maybe just maybe this change might be good for all of us.
Maybe the way we interact with each other will change.

It is up to each and every one of us to keep the flame of hope going strong, and also be wide open to changes.
Flexibility to change, to the next step of life on this planet.

Have a blessed New year everyone!
