A crisis like COVID-19 is like no other. Unlike the Global financial crisis in 2008 or the SARS crisis earlier, this COVID-19 has literally killed entire industries that were previously thought to be invincible, like aviation. From expecting a shortfall of over 200,000 pilots needed for the next few years and an abundant order of jets from leading jet makers like Boeing and Airbus, suddenly planes and crew are all grounded, worldwide!
In a world where instant material success is celebrated, even if such success is often short-lived, those of us who seek longevity and sustainability have always looked elsewhere.
Some individuals or institutions may sing praises about past glories and track records, but it may appear there is more persuasion to potential rather than historical successes.
