Finding Hope at the End of a Hard Year: Remarkable Lessons from 2020.

No one could have foreseen the events of 2020.

It was a tumultuous year. The pandemic overshadowed everything. Fires, hurricanes, protests, and the election dominated headlines. So did Tiger King, toilet paper shortages, major events held over Zoom, and everyday heroes.

For me, the biggest standout memories of 2020 have been the strong market growth, the creative ways people and businesses have adapted in the pandemic, being able to spend more time with Peanut, and consistently lifting weights at home instead of sitting in traffic.  I know the funny meme for 2020 is a picture of a dumpster fire, but my family and loved ones have been safe from COVID so far and there have been some meaningful bright spots.

What moments from the last year stand out for you?

Whatever they are—and whatever your verdict on last year may be—we can all agree 2020 has been disruptive and unforgettable.

It’ll be fascinating to see how history looks back at 2020 and what big lessons future generations take away from the past year.

As the year closes, here are some of the best life lessons we can take away from 2020 right now.  Bringing these lessons with us into 2021 can help make life better and happier in the New Year and beyond.
