3 Lessons not to be forgotten after the COVID-19 pandemia


Online si possible as well
It took an extreme situation to prove what was to be demonstrated: professional activity can go on even if we don’t use hard copies and stamped documents.

We find with some pleasant surprise that public institutions, which proved to be quite reluctant to use information and communication technology, are slowly beginning to work online.


We have received certificates issued online, we made records within Trade Register online, we received tax certificates online, and even the customers seem to understand that the future is online. It took an extreme situation to prove what was to be demonstrated: professional activity can go on even if we don’t use hard copies and stamped documents, even if we are not printing documents in 44 copies and sign them holographically. Nice start, I hope it will stay unchanged after the pandemic passes.


It does not mean moving everything online, it does not mean that we no longer interact with each other, it does not mean that certain actions are not simpler in the classic version, but it just means that online is possible and it is time to learn this and accept it forever.


Emergency state means neither war, nor anarchy, but reflection and action
Let's enjoy the beautiful things of this period spent mostly in our homes.

There is a while since emergency state was declared. However, we are still far from rational actions. Many of us are due misinformation or lack of empathy either on the side of extreme superficiality (what, haven't you seen a cold before?) or on the side of extreme exaggerations (only God can save us). Therefore, it's time to be rational, to realize that there is no war, no food shortage, we are neither held hostage in a bunker nor sleep deprived, and we still have lots of benefits of 21st century life.


It is time to reflect not so much on our personal well-being (because we do this every day, even without realizing it), but on the well-being of the less fortunate of us, who are in risk situations much more stressed than ours, who complain, criticize and express opinions about how it would be "better". Often "better" is the enemy of “good”. So, let’s enjoy the beautiful things of this period spent mostly in our homes! And there is plenty of them…

Do not postpone for tomorrow what you can make today; tomorrow nothing might be the same
One thing will certainly last after this period: nothing will be the same as before.

Once again, the old saying proves its strength and value. How many of us have not been caught unprepared for this pandemic? It seems that now we would like to meet beloved persons we postponed from week to week, we would like to visit our parents we didn't visit last week because it was raining or because, after a gruelling week of work, they could wait for another week.


Do not many of us suddenly want to leave the house for a walk or a barbecue, or to the opera, or to the theatre, or to the movie, right these days, even though for many months we have not done any of these activities? Should it be the temptation of forbidden fruit? Could it be that we got too used to doing what we want, when we want, how we want, if we want? May it be the fact that we have become accustomed to having rights while the obligations are left to others? Whatever the truth, one thing will certainly last after this period: nothing will be the same as before.


But it is up to us to learn our lessons, and to be better, more aware, more responsible, more empathetic. Fighting with ourselves will be much harder than fighting the virus, because staying in house will not work, and the prohibitions will have to be set by ourselves.
