“At its best, life is completely unpredictable” – Christopher Walken
The above-mentioned statement will surely be the most appropriate description when we look back on 2020 nearly 6 months from now.
At the time of this writing, South Africa has been under lockdown for 9 weeks due to COVID-19, and when listening to the predictions of the advisors, the end will not be in sight any time soon. Every life lost to COVID-19 is a life too much. At the same time, we cannot overlook the economic impact of COVID-19 on our country – every business currently struggling to survive is an indirect lifeline for many breadwinners that may lose their income due to retrenchments.
Although the future does not seem picture perfect, South Africans have shown many times in the past: when we are weak, we are actually at our strongest. Think about the Springboks’ remarkable road to victory during the 2019 World Cup Rugby Tournament.
