There are surely lessons for all of us in the current crisis. Some political, some cultural, some economic, and plenty environmental.
But it’s much easier to focus on — and get hooked on — macro than to get traction on it.
Except, that is, unless we’re willing to deal with it at the micro or personal level.
A friend said to me the other day that anyone who’s not looking for and actively trying to learn the lesson that this crisis and this time holds specifically for them is missing the point.
Reverse-engineer it from your favorite macro challenge if you must, but by all means don’t miss the lesson — or the opportunity.
