Yes, every time we turn around that word and a number of news stories are there to greet us. Talking to my team the other day, it's very apparent we've all grown numb to the facts and figures. If we had to do a shot every time someone said Coronavirus or COVID-19, we'd be passed out by 9AM.
But, it's a risk and reality we have had to navigate, and thankfully I've been able to stay employed and be surrounded by a fantastic team.
I wrote about this a couple of weeks back: https://www.projectmanagement.com/blog-pos...ate-on-COVID-19
The media will do what they can to sell advertising space and to increase mindshare. That doesn't mean we need to slavishly follow everything they are repeating.
Everything in moderation...
but we are talking about it again. :)
It's hard not talk about something that is influencing our daily lives and will cause changes in the near future.
Maybe we will have to adapt our lives to the new normality, with the virus present everywhere.
some say the year is lost due to Covid19...by the contrary would I reply. Many lessons, starting by the true kickoff of digital disruption
As November comes closer, I'd expect US media to shift their focus to the elections. And all we need is a few shark attacks worldwide in the summer to get the media to chase that next bright shiny bauble...
For me I changed perspectives and I see this as just another disruption. As such there are uncertainties, and ups and downs.
We discussed disruptions before, in the technology and business space, some lost, some won. This disruption helps to speed up things. And I agree, it is leading into a new world order. Not sure if it will be a new normal.
As uncertainty persists, it is human to look for answers and be open to new networks and information. I learned a lot in the past weeks and met a bunch of new good people.
The only major thing that bothers me is that we as project managers are not really relevant in helping other to get more secure. We might handle it as a threat to our projects, but I fail to see opportunities we grasp.
