Reflections in Times of Crisis

  1. “Good work, done well, for the right reasons.”
  2. There is no playbook in the face of unprecedented times. This implies that conventional wisdom need not apply forward, and one shouldn’t be bogged down by dogma.
  3. “Pace yourself now; come 2021 (or when the crisis is resolved & when the economy returns), you need to sprint.”
  4. Adaptability trumps smarts.
  5. Surround yourself with smart people, whom you can trust, and have your best interests at heart. Try to do the same for other people too.
  6. Optimise for optionality in times of uncertainty. Optimise for focus in times of certainty.
  7. We don’t have all the answers, but we know that staying still is not an option.
