Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break chain with the past and imagine their world anew. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted labor markets globally during 2020. The short-term consequences were sudden and often severe. Millions of people lost their jobs and others rapidly adjusted to working from home as offices were closed. Many other workers were deemed and
essential continued to work in hospitals and grocery stores, on garbage trucks and in warehouses, yet under new protocols to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Many of the problems we will face in the next decade will simply be more extreme versions of those that we already confront today. The world will only look significantly different this time if, as we emerge from this crisis, we decide to take action to resolve these problems and bring about fundamental change.
The world after COVID-19 is unlikely to return to the world that was.
Everyone is curious to know about the world post covid. Pandemic is a gateway to the between one world and a next world. Business travels are unlikely to recover soon. The nature seems to be healing and so soothing. Deforestation is decreasing, air pollution is diminishing, water quality is improving, snow is becoming reflective. Covid has also shown what humans can achieve as a collectiveness.
All those trends which were true before the pandemic have been dramatically accelerated now. Remote work is likely to become more common. The most profound thing is that we have started to remote everything like online studying, online meeting, video calls, buying from home, seeing the doctor from home so remoting everything is going to expand. This is an opportunity for improvement of the remoting systems. Now that many have tried it with good results, remote work might be here to stay. This is especially true of the digital economy, with the rise of digital behavior such as remote working and learning, telemedicine, and delivery services. We are also learning to be sustainable that is by moving almost everything into the digital world. There are gonna be opportunities for reinvention and reimagination. There will be unemployment as the robotics have been replaced with humans to do the work.
Governments will be bigger after playing the role of insurer and investor of last resort during the crisis. Public debt will balloon, creating financial challenges around the world.
As history has shown, choices made during crises can shape the world for decades to come. What will remain critical is the need for collective action to build economies that deliver inclusive economic growth, prosperity, and safety for all. Our goal for recovery should be full employment and a new social contract.
The most important lesson from the COVID-19 pandemic is the importance of working together on problems that affect the entire human race. We are much stronger united than divided. So at last we should only think about building a better world and not just should have our heads down. There is a hope beyond the crisis and there is an opportunity to build something far better.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
