In times of uncertainty, we spend an inordinate amount of time pondering that which is unknown and unknowable. It aggravates our anxiety, stress levels and all the nasty consequences these bring about.

Avoiding this unuseful spiral is quite easy. Ponder on what is certain instead. While the dominant narrative is fixed on the unpredictability and volatility, some things remain certain.

We survived the Spanish flu and came out stronger on the other side. We navigated the Great Depression and survived the invention of borderless terrorism.

What is certain is that we will get through this one way or the other.

What is certain is that innovation flourishes under constraint.

What is certain is that unity unlocks synergy.

What is certain is that hope propels us forward.
