I`ve got mixed feelings. It`s already a year since the virus was declared pandemic and, mostly, since people were arguing because of toilet paper. I know that you still get a speech on the news about how this period was but it`s hard to get completely over. I remember hardly the last game and now I am more convinced (the n-th time) about how much important it is to enjoy the moment no matter how much your personal experiences can encourage this or not.
I think all will be fine and that there is still potential despite the crisis. I was brainwashed during work and in the crypto-world (the hype is real) that now it is the time to build: during crisis. There are a few arguments for this and historically this seems to be very true. This crisis is good for the group: no games, no meetings, no target… All this period gave us the chance to get another perspective on what`s going on and showed us things we did not realize before.
I mean mixed feelings cause the new perspectives bring also information that make the whole more complicated and so all this demands more consideration. It`s that circle of knowledge that once it gets larger, you realize first that what you do not know is still more than what you have accomplished.
Now that the virus seems more under control than a year ago, the boys got some nerves (not courage) and want to get back to trainings, the ambitions got higher and new ideas pop up. Let`s see where all this brings us.
In fact, I think this is a good approach. Being positive about this (not necessarily positive for COVID), it`s a good thing in managing the situation. All this will support the process which it`s more important for amateurs than the target even if it not visible and hard to remember when trying to recall it.
