Last Saturday, on my 40th birthday, we had a “virtual cheers,” where roughly 15-20 people jumped on Zoom and we toasted the start to a new decade. It was actually a fun experience, but I’m not going to lie–I really hope this will be the last birthday I have to celebrate virtually 🙂

We took turns going around telling stories. Some were about me, some were about life. One of my best friends got on and said that I have a saying:

The best is yet to come.

I must say it so often that I don’t even realize it anymore, but it is one of my core beliefs. Even as we go through this difficult period, I still believe the best is yet to come for you, for me, for our society and for our world.

This video explains what I mean:

Feel free to share with your hard-working teams as well.

With every crisis comes opportunity, and that opportunity is a call for us to skill up and step up. You see it right now with the courageousness of healthcare workers. They’re being forced to do it, but they’re going to come out better, and stronger, on the other side.

For us, the choice may be more optional. If we choose wisely, the best is yet to come.
