One thing for sure is that in any crisis there is panic and fear all around us. The COVID-19 pandemic and the chaos it has brought is no different and at times has brought out the very worst out in us.
Today, the narrative is that we must embrace the new normal. To me this is a defeatist attitude. Yes, we must accept the current reality but we must not be resigned to believing it is permanent.
My thought of the week is that that we must demand that today’s reality is temporary and not permanent. We must never succumb to fear and merely give in to panic. Instead we must push forward and create a better future, innovate our way out of the current situation and never allow today’s challenges to be seen as the new normal. Today is not a fixed position. Today, is the starting point of getting to a better place.
