It is about taking things one day at a time, because we can’t predict the future. Living in the moment.

There are millions of theories to foresee how the future years or decades will be after the COVID-19 pandemic, for example, but the only thing we can control is how we cope with every single day right now. And to have each day as the unit of the future.

Nour Barakeh, March 2020

Author, business owner, activist. Focus is on organizational development, virtual learning, cross-culture, strategic communications.
