You don’t need me to tell you that the World is going through some very difficult and unprecedented times. I was wondering if it made any sense to publish my weekly collection in such times, but decided to focus on some articles that I found helpful:

Understand VUCA And Better Lead Your Company Through The SARS-CoV-2 Virus – ‘VUCA‘ is one of those abbreviations that I was not particularly fond of. It seemed like just another unnecessary addition to the jargon of the corporate world. Events of the past few weeks have led me to reassess my point of view. While I can’t say that I have completely reversed my opinion of it, I don’t mind saying that it can provide a useful framework for framing a response to facing uncertain times.

Resources for Families – If you, like me, have children stuck at home these days, then you might find these resources from National Geographic useful.

Dealing with the Immense Uncertainty of the World – This veers more towards spirituality and meditation, so might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But for others, it offers a perspective and a course of action.

Yuval Noah Harari’s History of Everyone, Ever – Finally, if you are looking for a nice, long, slightly distracting read, then you might like this particular feature on noted academician and author – Yuval Noah Harari. I learnt that Mr. Harari practices Vipassana meditation and he regularly visits India for these sessions.

Finally, please stay safe, this will soon pass.
