Forward. That word has a nice ring to it! Whether we are ready to move forward with an exciting Interior Design project, or looking forward to this terrible Pandemic finally receding, forward thinking is where we should focus our positivity! We are all on the same page when it comes to revising the way we are doing business (for the duration), and many of us are finding that some of our Pandemic related innovations might just stay in our strategies when it’s all over. (Nothing wrong with looking for some benefits out of all the hassle!)
Even in more “normal” times, there is a lot of preliminary preparatory work that has to be done before an Interior design project can get underway. In the face of imminent crisis, with a pandemic raging through communities, it’s difficult to hope; it is difficult to try to see over the tragedies and into a more manageable future. But, we all know that is just what we must do: look to the future, while managing a difficult present. I do what I can, myself, to keep that reality in mind, and press on. Those of us in business must improvise, innovate and press on. Many small businesses are holding on and weathering this situation as best they can. Some, unfortunately, may not make it back to commercial health; let’s cheer them on and spread the hope around. When this is behind us, let’s rally around them and support them back into a fair competitive position.
