We find ourselves in a situation where the world has been thrust into panic, economies are fractured, people are out of work, cities/states/countries are locking down the mobility of individuals, and the people are rightfully worried about what the future holds in this time of great uncertainty.
That’s why we have started this website “Strange New Normal” where we host everyday folks, visionaries, and subject matter experts to submit articles about the changes they have witnessed, experienced, insights they have gained, and the changes to our future that have the potential to alter the way we interact with one another and how we will live going forward.
This is a tough time. It may get harder. But this is also the time where humans can pull together to help build an amazing future.
The amazing thing about the Homo Sapiens is that we are incredibly resilient with overcoming difficult circumstances as a community. That, in reality, is why we have survived through the ages even though we lack the might and defensive teeth/claws of other species in the wild.
We have a secret weapon; 1,500CCs of amazing brain capacity that has empowered us with the ability to craft tools to improve our rates of survival, to organize communities to make us impervious to the hostilities of nature, and the ability to master abstract concepts such as planning for the future with new areas of research and development of what could be possible with a little bit of elbow grease.
So, welcome and thank you for joining us on this journey of using that grey matter to help plan for our future. Together, we can do anything!
