Don’t know about you but I’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately in a socially distant mode. When the Wired magazine showed up, I thought “What a great distraction!”. I then saw that it was totally dedicated to climate change. It was a distraction, but not in the way I expected.
That topic of climate change (though important) seems less of a priority in these trying times. With the stock market and the economy in shambles and the grocery store shelves relatively empty around here – strategic issues pale in comparison.
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is coming into play like most of us have never experienced. There was a CNBC article a few months back stating that 40% of the world’s countries will witness civil unrest in 2020. We will likely look back and view that as optimistic. Be prepared: plan for the worst and hope for the best.
Good luck out there – stay safe. Get some projects done that you’ve never been able to concentrate on before.
