As a teenager, I remember liking Robert Schuller saying “Hard times have never always existed but strong people do”.
At the time the real title wouldn’t mean much to me but, … that perspective has changed. As I think back to the year we’ve had, I can’t help but think about how many leaders have emerged because of the way they have responded to the crisis. Their courageous actions led to the saving of many lives.
This year we were all forced to stay home during the closure which resulted in unexpected results that spent hours of high quality with loved ones while taking the time to stand and smell roses (and sigh freely that, the sense of smell).
A friend told me that she and her husband sat on their former balcony and admired the beautiful view they had from their home, which they had never done before. Before the closure, both were busy New York lawyers who left home early in the morning and returned late at night.
In times of crisis, attitudes are everything: A 2000 American study, conducted by OnePoll and posted by Crockpot in January, found that those who took their time and considered themselves “rehabilitated”, not only practiced home life but had more opportunities to see the light at the end of the prison tunnel. in comparison to their “fast performance”, their counterparts have top lines.
This year it has become clear to leaders, government, and the private sector, that it is not enough to talk about equality but rather to invest in training workers to deal with ignorance.
I spoke to Nathalie Molina Niño, an investor who spent a lot of time in 2020 advising women entrepreneurs on how to get a PPP loan to finance their businesses, as she takes action about last year’s racial crisis.
“That is why I am more confident now than ever, eliminating all forms of modern reloading (such as PPP policy) should be a top priority for anyone leading the next economy.”
The bright heroes of 2020 were health care workers who stood firm and continued to do their best to save lives even if the protective devices they needed were not available. However, the annual news of the resilience was not only in the corridors of the hospital but also in the market.
Persistence can mean keeping your spirit alive while closing a business or riding an emotional rollercoaster that comes with reviving a company. The story of Elle Wang, founder, and CEO of Emilia George, is a good example of this. The epidemic comes three months after launching its clothing line. With all public areas closed, his textile mills halted production.
In April, at the peak of the epidemic, they realized there was a shortage of masks so they decided to recycle fabric-made fabrics to make Covid covers and after the product received immediate recognition, received a letter from the National Institute of Health, requesting 100,000 rules. . They placed the order first and delivered it within 1.5 months. Wang is keeping one of his most proud moments when Dr. Anthony Fauci donates their life-saving help to the Senate. Their brand has grown, expanding into stores like Neiman Marcus and others.
Elle advises: “If you can put up with it for a while, then you can get to the point where you have no idea.” Cry, all right, as long as you keep going. ”
While none of us know what is coming in the future, I know we can do more: Hope for the better, keep our loved ones loved, treat people with dignity, and when things get tough? The most tolerant.
