Welcome to the Next Normal
THE WORLD THAT AWAITS US CAN BE BETTER THAN THE ONE WE ARE SO AFRAID TO LEAVE BEHIND
Unlike many of the experts forecasting undesirable scenarios, I think the COVID-19 pandemic presents us with an opportunity to do something great. In fact, I think we have the opportunity to become the next evolution of “The Greatest Generation” – a Greatest Generation 2.0, if you will. After all, we are a generation of people coming together in the face of great adversity and have the opportunity to prove that we have what it takes to overcome.
As you read this vision story, please recognize that it is not intended so much as a call to action as an attempt to raise our collective awareness about the possibilities for the coming tomorrow. The hope is that, through a heightened awareness, the ideas presented will inform and compel us to do the “right” things as we finally come out of this crisis.

The choice is ours. Let us choose to become the Greatest Generation 2.0.
We have the opportunity to become the next evolution of the “Greatest Generation”– a Greatest Generation 2.0, if you will.
