Nothing is going to be as before. After all this crisis of Coronavirus, nothing is going to be the same. We are going to live something new; we are going to live a new era. This uncertainty and this situation are transforming society in all aspects. It’s economically transforming society, the way of investing and managing teams. We have demonstrated that working from home it’s possible and that digitalizing our business can help us to optimize our time. The way of shopping is going to change too. People now want a new product that anyone else has tried and fitted on before. This is the time for those startups that analyze your body and helps you to choose the correct size; that startups that can give you a demo about how that item fits on you.
We need to focus on the good things of this crisis, not in the bad ones because they don’t let us keep going, they only let us stagnate. We need to be optimistic and we need to see that we can be reinforced of this crisis but as long as efforts are not oriented towards the same mistakes we made before. It’s not going to be easy to exit this crisis but if we all are working together, we can get the best of us and go out of this is a unique country and a unique world united to leave this situation as soon as possible and without leaving people in the gutter.
This crisis is different from the other ones. We haven’t lived any of this before. Some people are comparing this crisis with the one after the II World War but actually, we don’t know it. It’s the first time that from now on everything is new. We cannot go back to the past; we need to keep walking and we to squeeze our imagination to do it. This is the time for developing new skills that we didn’t know before. We need to adapt to the situation and not get frustrated because it scares us. We have already started this path; people have already transformed their companies from offline to online in a week. This is amazing. We have passed from classroom lectures to online lectures in only three days. We have evolved like never before. Let’s keep doing this. Let’s keep surprising ourselves and we will see that the end of this crisis it’s closer than we think.
The retail industry must change to survive. Companies have the opportunity of surviving by transforming their companies into e-commerce and the ones who already have it to update it with new plugins and tools that can give more help to the user. I think after this is ended, we are going to go back to the streets, and we are going to go to the shopping Centers, but something will be different. Online purchasing will continue increasing because a lot of people are going to prefer to buy online. After all, it’s easier and it’s also safer for our health. This sanitary crisis has also shown us that companies can lose control of their production chain. So, it’s the time to learn from the past and re-transform the production chain strategies and get the factories back to their home countries so these companies can control it better if this situation happens again and also can boost the national economy by decreasing the unemployed rate.
One friend told me one time that the secret of our future is hidden in our daily routine. We know this path is not going to be easy. We need everybody to been involved so we can exit this as soon as possible and go straight ahead to the new era, the era after coronavirus. Nothing is going to be like before, but we have the power to improve it.
