7 Leadership, Performance and Life Lessons for the New Year Learned During the Pandemic

New-Year 2021

The pandemic of 2020, and soon to be 2021, has created both extreme and lasting impressions on us all of us.  It is a singular event that truly, "We are all in it together.  "For me, it has been interesting to see how politicians, business leaders, and everyday people have handled the challenges and emotional upheaval that have come with the disruption of what we knew as "normal" life.  Here are 7 unique and somewhat whimsical quotes, from different sources of inspiration that speak strongly to me, convey what I've learned, and what I am embracing going forward into the New Year.

"The only way to do our best work right now, is to work well together."

-Tim Carl

"Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.  (Or the one)."

-Spock (and Kirk)Star Trek ll – The Wrath of Khan

The Needs of the Many Outweigh The Needs of the Few - YouTube

"You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

-Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh

"Some days there won't be a song in your heart.  Sing anyway."

-Emory Austin

"In the face of adversity, we have a choice.  We can be bitter, or we can be better.  Those words are my North Star."

-Caryn Sullivan

"In the rush to get back to normal, use this time to decide which parts of normal are worth rushing back to."

-Dave Hollis

And – hopefully very soon….

"This, too, shall pass…."

Happy New Year - 2021!
