When you think about it, really, relationships are everything.
Everything and everyone is interrelated and interconnected. The survival of one is dependent on the survival of the system to which that organism belongs and vice-versa.
When complex issues are taken together systemically, new insights appear, normally, unseen and oblivious to the decision-maker.
It sounds like a cliché, but what goes around, comes around.
In reality, what comes around, goes around faster than ever before. We know that serendipity is not that unpredictable. There's no such thing as chance encounters.
Interconnections and interlinkages shouldn't just be in our social relations.
In many instances, the best innovation starts within the interstices of divergent and contrasting approaches and disciplines. Take the case of a watch that does tell a time but also act as monitor for abnormal heart conditions. These permutations are bridging what we conceptually think as 'irrational and weird' combinations.
Ideas are everywhere.
Systems collide and coalesce, depending on forces that impinged on or that works within. As I write this, many systems are failing us, and new systems have yet to be imagined and invented.
Where will you be in the post-pandemic world- what systems are you trying to resuscitate or have you thought of leaving the old one for a better alternative?
