Even though the year 2020 is going to be a year of vision and clarity, people still have problems of living up to that. There was an example of a 24 year old man on a train making childish remarks about the colors of the trees and the clouds and people were making fun of him. His father remarked that his son just got eye surgery and this was the first day that he could see. Even though we are advanced with technology and tools, we still have a long way to go concerning empathy.
- To a young man given sight for the first time, the most basic objects are thrilling to see.
- Everyone has a story, but we often miss it because we are rushing to draw our own conclusions.
- In 2020, focus on vision and clarity, and on trying to get the story right.
“As we debate whether we’ve entered a new century or not, we’re still long on tools and technologies and short on insights and empathy.”
