Gearing up for the New Year of 2021

January 2020 began just like the Great Roaring ’20s. The decade of the 1920’s lifted all social classes on the winds and wings of a surging economy and profuse consumerism from sales of mass-produced goods that made lives more comfortable, including radio’s refrigerators, and washing machines. The social landscape was changing quickly from automobile travel’s increasing affordability and a Model T less than 400 dollars. Businesses began issuing consumer credit, it was a “Goldilocks” economy, and as they say, “The rest is history.”
Then, fast forward one century. Likely most of us would consider 2020 a year of tremendous challenge with the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic and the rapid changes in social, business, and educational life. Time has never stood still, and here we are, welcoming the New Year of 2021.
Looking forward to 2021 and expecting life to return to pre-Covid-19 normalcy maybe a soupcon unrealistic. Yet predicting what’s ahead for 2021 is best deferred to the experts.
So to help us plan to thrive in 2021, no matter what the New Year 2021 may bring, a plan to bring hope to hardship, even if as simple as supporting your local entrepreneurs and therefore local families is a good start to the year ahead. Or perhaps helping to build your local community into a healthier and more sustainable place through say concerted organizational successes will likely be smart allocations of equity with your time and resources.
And foremost, investments of gratitude for these simple freedoms may never have been more critical to our individual and collective futures and why our community(s) can experience memorable enjoyments in each season and profusions from ae quality of life.
Now, we may perhaps find a helpful idea or two in the following article:
We wish you a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!
