‘I’d like a do over on 2020 please. ‘
‘2020 has been a terrible year.’
‘In 2021 I need to fit in two years worth of adventures as I missed everything in 2020.’
The list of comments I’ve heard can go on. For many of us, 2020 has not been a good year. For many, our mental health has suffered significantly. And for most, we living in the hope of what might be in 202, the trends and the dreams.
And while having hope and dreams is critical to being human, so is learning. Learning often happens the most when we go through difficult challenges. Therefore, in the upcoming week, I’ll be reflecting on what I learnt in the year that was 2020. Yes, it was significantly different than any year I’ve experienced before. Which also means, it’s the opportunity to learn more.
Perhaps it’s wise to spend more time analysing 2020 than making predictions about 2021. We can learn from our difficult year.
The choice is up to us.
