Adam's 2021 Year In Review

Adam's 2021 Year In Review

2021 – a 2nd year living in a pandemic. For us in Australia it meant more strict lockdowns, wearing facemasks, and missing out on family time with those who didn’t live in your direct household. For single people, it meant a lot of isolation and I had some conversations with people who were really hurting.

The introduction of COVID-19 vaccines last year saw many seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with the promise to end the lockdown if we hit 95%. But boy did it polarise people – I have a wide group of friends and employees, and I saw friend against friend on the pro-vax, anti-vax stance! No matter where you stand on the issue, I hope we can have conversations with less heat with each other in 2022. Listening and open dialog gives you an understanding of the other’s perspective, which is so important.

It was great to sneak in a visit my mum in Melbourne after not seeing her for such a long time, and to also see some of my team doing YOLO! activities towards the end of the year. A YOLO! day is an extra day of leave you can use at SSW to do something you wouldn’t normally do… and we saw colleagues doing diving, swimming with turtles, and one with sharks! Hence using the term ‘You Only Live Once’!
