A number of people are indicating that 2022 is another year to move on from. And, of course, we do need to move on (as if there were an alternative ;). Still, 2022 was a good year for Quinnovation, and here’s hoping that continues. Here’re some random thoughts looking ahead.
For one, I saw an interesting piece leveraging the financial adage (really: caution) that “past performance is not indicative of future results”. That comes with various investment opportunities; just because they’ve done well in the past doesn’t meant that will continue. The nice twist in the article was to apply it to yourself: if the past year wasn’t a great one, that doesn’t mean you’re going to continue to suffer. Things can get better despite what happened in the past (or worse), though of course taking your own proactive steps is recommended. Indeed, given that for me, 2020 and 2021 were slow years didn’t mean 2022 had to be. Fortunately!
In the broader sense, I think that despite some hiccups, we’re seeing positive trends. For instance, I increasingly see calls for greater attention to evidence-based practices. While that doesn’t mean it’s happening yet, but the notice is hopefully precedes implementation!
We’ve still some legacies slowing us down, of course. I do think that the belief in us as formal reasoning beings will continue to be a barrier. Still, the above clarion call should help us move (however slowly) to right that wrong.
I’m optimistic, by nature (despite being skeptical). Thus, I think we are working our way forward. I reckon I’ll keep working on that, at least. I am continuing with the Learning Development Accelerator, and Upside Learning, as well of course continuing to do Quinnovative things. I’m looking ahead to us having an impact, together!
