Big Changes Can Happen Faster Than We Think

Planes are grounded. Sports are gone. School is online. Disney is closed!
⠀⠀
Just a few months ago, who would’ve thought?
⠀⠀
It's like we jumped forward a decade, and returned to the past at the same time.
⠀⠀
One lesson might be: big changes don’t have to take so long.
⠀⠀
We tend to measure our goals in revolutions around the sun. Isn’t it arbitrary?
⠀⠀
We’ve now seen that some of the stuff we thought would take years - like the transition to online work - is pretty much done in a few months.
⠀⠀
Humans adapt, when we have to especially.
⠀⠀
But not every improvement requires technology. We can look to the past as well.
⠀⠀
We’ve seen the damage done by modern farming. We’ve seen the fragility of centralized food production.
⠀⠀
A more traditional model could do us and the environment a lot of good.
⠀⠀
If we’re serious about it, it doesn’t have to take another decade to make a better food system the norm.
⠀⠀
All it takes is our commitment to change.
⠀⠀
What better time than now?
