IF YOU ARE NOT IN SURVIVAL MODE YOU SHOULD BE IN PLANNING MODE



 Yesterday I wrote I had a series of very interesting meetings today about how the challenges of Coronavirus will impact the short-term (current health and social crisis), medium-term (business and economic crisis) and long-term (changes in vision, values, habits, behaviours and expectations)

Today I read this…

I’m clearly not the only one thinking that coronavirus will have implications for the long-term and for those who are not flat-out coping with the immediate crisis it may be worth investing your time to planning what the future may look like and getting ready for that.

The book Black Swan suggests that whilst it is difficult to predict, it is common sense to prepare.

The above referenced article make clear that food, medical and office work may significantly change. I agree. I have also observed that despite “working from home” people are struggling to utilise the tools for communication and collaboration but that will quickly change and become the new normal. Thereafter it will be difficult to go back.

Recent books that have influenced me include

How to Fix the Future – Andrew Keen
Utopia for Realists
Life 3.0
Everything by Yuval Noah Harari
Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics for an Age of Crisis - George Monbiot
WTF?: What have we done? Why did it happen? How do we take back control? - Robert Peston

I value comments feedback or any suggested reading
