AdNews asked young guns for their perspective on the year that was and the prospects for the road ahead:
What you think was the best of 2020
There’s nothing like a dose of perspective to boost your daily gratitude, and 2020 has served it up on a silver platter. Going into 2021 we won’t take the ‘little things’ for granted - eating at restaurants, going to the gym, hugging a loved one or simply going for a walk. We are now acutely aware of how hard it can be without those ‘little things’ in our life – and without doubt, that’s been the best thing about this year. We’ve lost a lot, but a gained sense of perspective.
What was the worst
I think the worst part of 2020 is the toll it has taken on people, physically, emotionally, mentally and financially. We are exhausted. Goals and milestones have been put on hold, finances are being closely monitored and plans have been put on pause with no guide as to when they can recommence. As a person who is a planner by nature, the lack of certainty is exhausting and definitely has taken a toll.
