"Your current habits are perfectly designed to deliver your current results." - James Clear
I'm a big fan of James Clear because much of data management is based on habits. Whatever business process we develop, if we execute it long enough, it becomes habit. And so, as Clear points out, we're getting exactly what we should expect out of our current habits; no more and no less.
Given the current state of world affairs, the habits we have are probably not going to serve us well going forward. And so this means we need to take a hard look at how we're doing things now and determine what processes (as well as people and technology) need to be changed to adapt to our new reality.
When we're in a proactive mode we should take the time to do this. When we're in a reactive mode (like now), we have to take the time to do this.
Seems like it's time to start developing some new habits.
