While the world population hopes the vaccine to fight the novel virus is about to be accessed globally, it seems people have already adapted to the new reality.  The world has received a reboot it has long needed, and we didn’t have a choice but to embrace it. From companies declaring remote-first policies to businesses that wouldn’t have flourished just a few months ago: we are learning on the go.
