Hard as it is to imagine sometimes, I do believe we will find some silver linings as we come out and find the other side of this mushiness (and I am confident that we will).
One C-19 benefit will be greater appreciation of things we have taken for granted … social intimacy, freedom to act and go where we please, spending worry-free time with friends and family – and so much more. I think we will also have grown as a society in awareness and a more positive understanding of basic social equality and justice for all lives.
Another residual benefit will be greater commitment to adaptability and resilience as individuals, teams and organizations. It is good to remember that Darwin’s credo was the “survival of the most adaptable” and not the strongest.
