The events of the past year have changed our reality so much that even children can now work with a "before" and "after" line. The habit of planning, deciding, relying on our international partners and predicting our own and others' actions has become impractical. But for us who are active, who plan, who live in multiple countries or do international business, what we perceived as a devastating disaster can be transformed into a new and improved way of life.
Our basic instincts - self-preservation, concern for family and the desire for control - still guide our behaviour and our short- and long-term decisions. But the new reality requires a change in the way we live and do business. We are challenged to review and optimise all existing business relationships. In some cases, face-to-face contact can be successfully replaced by remote contact. In others, however, we only reaffirm the value of personal contact. In our relationships with institutions, we now also place special emphasis on the ability to successfully solve problems regardless of each other's location.
