The recent global crisis has left us in uncharted – certainly turbulent – waters in our personal and business lives. This difficult time is driving us all to review how we operate as businesses and communities. Here in the UK, at the time of writing, we’re at the early stages of dramatic changes that we’ve had to make and it’s unclear what is to come and for how long it’s going to be before we return to some form of normality.

Have you ever tried to fill a bucket full of holes with water? It’s pretty tough, right?! The water you pour in the top, just pours out the bottom. You keep working hard to get the water level up, but those holes are just too damned big. At this rate you’re never going to fill that bucket to the top. There are only two options left, you can either: Become Chuck Norris and watch the bucket fill itself.
