How COVID has changed our world of tomorrow completely.
What have we learned in these past few months? Nearly half year of 2020 has passed. We recognize the entire world from all aspects are facing financial, emotional, and operational challenges brought on by this infamous virus named COVID-19.
Covid has massively affected multi dimension aspects in our world: Health, Economy, Job Security, Food Security, and Sustainability.
Although we have had previous pandemics in our lifetime, but humanity has never experienced anything like this.
Throughout 7 continents around the world, never been in history – human history — we are seeing so much relentless efforts in focusing trying to solve a single problem, as we are coming together with a solution.
Doctors, Scientists, medical experts around the globe put all they have to combat this pandemic finding a vaccine. Then we have more challenges ahead when vaccines are here. Do we have infrastructures for delivery to the masses? How are we doing this to billions of people?

“Disaster does not recognize who or what you are. Disaster does not recognize your title, your age, your financial status, your social status, your political status, your gender, faith, and ethnicity. We must come and unite together.” -Nicky Dare, founder of iDARE®, DARE Education, Advocate to Safety, Preparedness and Sustainability.
We are figuring it out collectively as humanity. Already nearly 5 months many things have started unfolding before us; reorienting our relationship to government, to the outside world, to ways we do business, working, even to each other. Adapting to the new normal, flexible use of technology to stay connected and communication, less polarization, and somewhat revived appreciation of life’s simplicity, mostly for the outdoors.
None of us know exactly what will present ahead of us, the unknown ways of government, healthcare, economy, our lifestyles, places of work and many more.
Some of the discussions highlighting on: more restraints on mass consumption, stronger domestic supply chains, and perhaps hunger for diversion where humanity seeks for community and support system.
It is a way for us to take time for self-reflection to going back to basics in our lives. Or perhaps for us to go back to learn to take care of each other and what matters most in our lives, in a space we share together call home.
Perhaps working from home is not bad after all, and in some cases (because of no more commuting minus traffic and travel time) it does improve productivity.
Here are some provoking thoughts and concerns to consider:
Has climate change and Covid somehow intersected along the way?
What and how can sustainability expedite to recovery?
How are we staying sustainable for our business and our family?
What are our strategies and tactics to cope and deal with this moving target?
What would we do differently to prepare for next time?
But for now, this famous virus is disrupting our lives, our freedom, and impacting sustainability.
There are many questions remain unanswered.
