It’s often said that trying to predict the future is a fool’s errand. There are just too many moving parts to even get a high probability of what the future will look like.
Having said that, I am almost certain like me (especially if you run and manage a business or are self-employed) you have considered several options on what the future holds. Mainly because we need to plan.

What I am slowly, and reluctantly, starting to accept is that we will never return back to normal. Normal in this instance means normal and regular movement of people and having gatherings.
I say this mainly because it appears that social distancing, for one, is here to stay. That’s sensible if we are to stop the rapid spread of future viruses, some which could be deadly.
But what does this mean for businesses? What does this mean for the movement of goods? Entertainment? Sports?
I would love to hear your thoughts as we all try to make sense of the future.
