I am sure we could not have imagined 2020 could have turned out the way it has, this was the year that was going to change our lives. A new year, a new decade which was going to change our lives but can you see how things have turned out now! Our plans for the year have totally been destroyed and we really want the year that started so well to come to an end and for things to go back to normal. The truth is that things will never go back to the way we knew them, you see now and again something happens that changes everything and things are never the same and our job is to adjust to the new normal. I remember growing up in a small mining town in Luanshya northern Zambia and when the mine closed people had to adjust and do things they never thought they could do in order to survive. The people who became successful are those who did not wait for things to go back to normal because they never did and our little town has had to adjust so much to live in the “New Normal”
As we make our first steps in the new normal, the one thing we have to remember is that things will never be same; a lot of things will never be the same again. Wishing that things will go back to be the way they were before will hold us back from achieving our goals. The truth is that what could have made us successful at the start of this year will not be able to make us successful anymore; this lives us with one option, change. If everything around us is changing we have no option but to change.
