Epiphany Epiphany: the moment of revelation, when something becomes absolutely clear. Viruses don’t respect boundaries – national, social, economic or physical.  So borders are connection points, not barriers.  And essential workers grow, make, care, pick, stack & deliver.  But many doing these tough jobs are on low wages with no job security.  Light through the…

Visit So how did Santa visit on 25 Dec despite Covid restrictions?  He secured priority classification (essential work).  He reassured (social-distancing).  He used allies (NORAD), tech (online delivery) & experience (past pandemics).  He ensured the Team was briefed (time/quantity targets) and fit (elves/reindeer).  His paperwork was correct & complete (no quarantine/delays).  UK firms – apply…

Obsolete What seems obsolete can be catapulted into the frontier!  Use of UK postboxes had fallen as we switched online.  But they’re now vital receptacles for secure, fast & frequent collection of Covid test samples.  For their intended uses, windows, buckles, bricks, forks, paper & shipping containers are also unbeaten.  Unlike cutting-edge tech, all these…

Little 2020 turned out to be The Year of the Little People.  SO many world leaders, big organisations & leading countries fell short.  But little people, workers, firms & nations delivered – care, food, improvisations or whatever was needed.  Ordinary folks did extraordinary stuff.  Never write off the little people!  Happy, healthy & prosperous New…

Next Covid proves we never know what’s coming next.  Innovation is typically incremental, gradual, serendipitous & inexorable.  Usually not from one eureka moment, but many trial-&-error experiments.  Now is the time to try doing something different or differently; and using fewer, not more, resources.  Going round in circles – but what goes round need not…

Emphasis Business covid- survival tactic: change product/service emphasis, to be more visible & relevant.  Having a basic plan, a fallback plan & an alternative plan enables us to take a long-term view, but make short-term decisions.  Physical & virtual shops must co-exist; trained staff & helpful videos make them ‘magic cubes’.  Online launches & virtual fairs…

Define Work defines who we are, moulds our values, determines our future prospects.  We remain fixated on finding work for all, even if it’s toil with no purpose other than to keep the wheels of commerce turning.  Like automation, Covid offers a vision of a more leisured future, and invites us to reassess why &…
