When I decided to start Panpathic Communications 12 years ago, one of the important goals I had was that I would be able to work from anywhere.  My time as a journalist had given me the travel bug and I didn’t want my new business to prevent me from seeing and experiencing the world.

The wave of digital transformation triggered by the pandemic has changed many organizations quickly: from governments to restaurants, enterprises are now getting digitally ready. That is good news given the creation of additional customer value, and the newfound efficiencies that the digital world brings. However, there are some important considerations to be made.

One of the biggest weaknesses in terms of cybersecurity and the long-term sustainability of the digital economy is the issue of identity. Nobody really knows who you are on the Internet. Digital identity has been an afterthought. But things are changing, and fast. This is an area that needs to be understood much better.

First, we followed stars, then we drew maps and created signs; humans have been wayfinding since the start of civilization. And for as long as there has been wayfinding of any variety, businesses have been using it to help direct people towards their premises. By providing clear guidance on how to find their shop, workplace or office, businesses attract more customers and greater income.

You don’t need to be an accountant to be interested in hourly rates – be you employer or employee, those numbers are important. I once attended a seminar where my fellow attendees and I were asked to write down our hourly rate. The group included a lawyer, and he had no trouble writing down his answer, but for the rest of us, it took a bit of thought. Should we take our annual income and divide it by the number of working hours in a year? Or do we need to know what we would be doing? If we were to help with his tax return, then that might command a premium that clearing out his garage or digging up some potatoes would not. But eventually we each arrived at our own number, which we duly wrote down.

For a proper and effective spring clean of your business, you need to do more than shift some filing cabinets for a proper vacuuming session. A proper declutter can feel like bursting open the windows to breathe in the fresh air of a whole new creative chapter – for your business and for you.

If you are irritated by any of the suggestions or want to dismiss any, these are the ones to pay particular attention to.

Microsoft underplayed the Internet at first and had to manage an expensive (and very successful) turnaround. Facebook was also too slow to pick up the mobile internet, and it had to acquire emerging competitors such as WhatsApp and Instagram that were threatening to eclipse the social network via their mobile apps. Both companies have learned lessons and they do not what to miss the boat on the next evolution of the Internet – the Metaverse.

And they are not alone. The list of companies offering a flavor of the Metaverse is growing; Google is working on a Metaverse updated version of its interactive glasses, and Epic Games has raised $1bn to support their internal development of a Metaverse.

By Anne Jones, author of How to Heal

Part of being in business is dealing with frustrations. These can take many forms, such as rude customers, difficult suppliers, impenetrable red tape, or problematic changes to legislation. How we deal with these feelings of frustration is important – succumbing to negative emotions such as anger may take its toll on your mental health and perhaps push your business down an undesirable path. Do you really want to be a business that snaps back at customers, bickers with suppliers, ignores necessary paperwork, or flouts laws?

We all have times when spontaneous negative thoughts take over our rational mind. If you suppress and bottle up your feelings:

  • You can constantly feel frustrated
  • Anger can churn inside you causing health issues such as ulcers and digestive problems
  • You feel generally miserable and under par
  • You may feel misunderstood or ignored

Removing Negative Thoughts

None of these is an aid to running a business.

Maddy Cooper, founder of a sustainability marketing agency, Brilliant Noise was burnt out. Bex Shindler, plant-based chef and founder of The Mindful Kitchen, was stuck by a fear of failing. They were casualties of business being conducted from the head rather than the heart. Limited beliefs, assumptions, and defaulting to what worked in the past can be the result of a business that is purely head-led. Our soul’s calling and creative expression can be ignored in pursuit of profit, and our relationships and health can deteriorate as we burn out.

By listening to her heart, Maddy reconnected to her purpose of creating a sustainable world for her children. She fell back in love with her business, pitching and winning big global brands aligned with this purpose. And nine months after committing to following her heart, Bex was hired as the chef for the Black Eyed Peas and had a fully booked diary of Ibiza retreats fulfilling her purpose of providing compassionate food for a compassionate world.

During the pandemic Zoom and its like have been (and will continue to be) incredibly useful business tools, but beyond the basic communication of information, a vital part of those virtual business meetings was the connection. Humans crave connection, something that has been limited (at times more than others) over the last two years. Even those who embraced remote working and enjoyed the experience of working from home need to be seen, to be heard, to be connected.

We need to connect, feel the connection, and become connected to others. These shifts don’t need to be herculean efforts. I’m a great believer in instant change, little ‘micro-moments’ of learning or adaptation that allow us to actively take charge of our situation and emotions in the moment, reset, and bring more of our best to help ourselves and others. Each micro-moment intervention is designed to be actionable in a minute and I’ve written three books on these micro-moments for life, work, and family.

As many of us return to the workplace (either full-time or as part of a hybrid arrangement), here are five ways to re-connect and plug back into life – in just a moment.

There are obvious drawbacks to virtual cake, but if your team works remotely, it really is worth gathering everyone together for a Zoom celebration when one of your colleagues becomes another year older. It is such an easy morale booster – even better when people can join in in person. This got me and my team thinking about all the special occasions and celebrations that there are around the world, and the opportunities they give us to bring us a little bit of joy and magic. These are often found in tiny moments and all it takes is a little shift of perspective to really see and appreciate them. I’m a great believer in instant change, little ‘micro-moments’ of learning or adaptation that allow us to actively take charge of our situation and emotions in the moment, reset, and bring more of our best to help ourselves and others.
