2020——What have we learned?
“It was the best of times, It was the worst of times”.
It’s important, as the year comes to an end to assess what we learned in this unusual year. There will continue to be tough times ahead for many businesses and people but it is imperative that we focus on the positive as we move into 2021.
There is an old Yiddish expression that says “man plans and God laughs”.
It has really been a year of upended plans and my mantra for many years has been “Life is short, eat dessert first” (resulting in my being a Type Two Diabetic, LOL!).
A better day may not come, so enjoy friends and family now and let them know how you feel about them today.
There are signs of caring all over the world. Never has the realization that ‘WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER” been more evident. Some leaders have risen to the occasion and those who have faltered have been isolated. Businesses have become more flexible, new technologies have appeared or become even more prominent and the positive changes can be integrated into challenges ahead.

When things get back to “normal”

Catchphrases like the “new normal” or “when things get back to normal” are outdated and overused. We have a new reality and encourage every one of us to look at 2020 with an eye to what we have learned. There are many losses to be remembered but moving ahead into the future is about learning from the past.

Wishing you all a safe and healthy 2021!

Christmas Wishes from Jim and his son Luca from City Hall, Toronto.
