In just a week, it’s the dawn of a new day. We’ve lived through practically a year of a worldwide pandemic, a life of quarantine isolated from many of our loved ones, millions of losses, an intense political climate, mass unemployment, and things we’ve just never, ever in our lifetimes. So many new lessons learned in 2020.
On the positive side, we’ve grown stronger connections with people we love (albeit virtually), gotten space in our mind to process what we independently want the new normal to look like, and hopefully found a new sense of gratitude.
For better or worse, this year changed us. And now, looking back, we can see that those new lessons learned in 2020 — about health, resilience, community, and our shared history as Americans—are lessons that will hopefully stick with us for the rest of our lives.
Below, our 12 podcast guests share their revelations, specifically the nine months spent in quarantine, from the importance of having boundaries to learning how to delegate.
