It’s hard to be an optimist these days. The health pandemic is taking lives and the economic crisis is closing businesses. Not much to cheer about here. In fact, it seems rude to be upbeat.
Yet in spite of these hardships, here are three reasons to be excited about a post-COVID world.
Make no mistake: the COVID crisis is tragic. The human and economic suffering will be the worst we’ve known in modern times. More losses are coming. There will be no V-shaped recovery.
Still, if we allow ourselves a moment’s luxury to think positively, good things are on the horizon. A nudge to embrace productivity-enhancing cyber technologies, a chance to ignite the power of community, and a crash course in creativity and innovation — these are the positives that will pave the path to the future.
