“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” — Viktor Frankl
We are finally saying goodbye to a year that has challenged most of us in very deep ways. A great portion of humanity has been pushed to the limit this year and forced to rethink the way they carry out our lives. For better or worse, we’ve had to abandon plans, reinvent our careers, postpone celebrations and endure financial and emotional hardship. As we close the first year of this decade, here are some important reflections that can help us be better prepared for the future.
HEALTH IS EVERYTHING
Not all of us had to experience the painful suffering of COVID-19 patients in the hospital, but those that did, quickly discovered how health is the most important foundation in our lives. We have learnt that being physically strong and healthy will help us endure the challenges that life puts in our way. Make your health a priority in 2021 by eating healthy, doing exercise, sleeping well, laughing regularly and by developing deep human relationships that will strengthen your sense of well-being.
LIFE GOES ON
As radical and long-drawn 2020 has been, we are about to cross over to a new year. This is an important reminder that all things shall pass, no situation or circumstance is permanent. This year we were compelled to face and accept many harsh realities and it is fundamental that we do not succumb to despair. Have hope that life will change even when you are at your lowest point and try to develop an attitude of trust in life. It won’t take long before you notice yourself moving more freely and confidently in your day-to-day.
THERE IS ALWAYS A SOLUTION
Many of us lost our jobs, had to close businesses, or cut down on working hours and, in that process, we had to reinvent ourselves to find ways to make a living. We suddenly started discovering that we are a problem-solving species that can generally find ways of fixing a situation. Work we thought could only be done in the office is suddenly carried out perfectly remotely. Local businesses found ways to make their products available through the vast technology we employ today. Next time you encounter an obstacle, take a deep breath and be confident that you will find a solution, if you truly apply yourself to the problem.
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE
When the pandemic started going full throttle many of us saw how our plans began to literally disintegrate. Plan A became plan B and then Plan C, until we had no plans left. Whether we wanted or not, we had to remain open to an uncertain future and this can feel very uncomfortable. We are beings that enjoy routines and structure; and here was 2020 dissolving all of that. Patience is one of the virtues that allow us to be in the present moment without desiring any particular outcome. The more you cultivate patience, the more calm and still you will become, no matter what kind of curve ball life throws at you.
Remember that time when mobile phone manufacturers were trying to make them smaller and smaller? Well, since smartphones came into the market in the 2010’s this pattern has evidently changed: mobile phones back then had screens as small as 3.5 inches, while nowadays you can’t find a smartphone that has a screen smaller than 5.5 inches. If we have the knowledge to make them smaller, why do we have the impression they’re getting bigger with each new release?
- Camera: Today smartphones can film amazing videos that can be used for professional productions thanks to their high resolution cameras - which need bigger and more powerful sensors.
- Heat: Our smartphones today have processors that create a lot of heat when they work, so manufacturers need bigger devices to help get rid of the heat in the phone faster.
- High Resolution Screens: There is a huge part of the market that enjoys playing video games, experiencing virtual reality and watching tv series and movies in their smartphone. That’s why bigger screens with better resolution are part of the appeal.
- Battery: In order to power the camera, the high-res screens and all its many features, smartphones need bigger batteries to support its functions without it dying off too soon.
Let’s be honest. In today’s market if manufacturers thought small phones would sell well, they’d make more of them, and they are actually getting thinner even though they’re growing in diameter due to the high demand for entertainment and the many features found in these gadgets.

This month saw the release of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and Series S. These join the Nintendo Switch as the main video game consoles of this new generation (the ninth one since the first consoles were released in the market back in 1975) that promise 4K gaming at up to 120 frames per second, ray tracing and faster loading speeds than its predecessors. Both Sony and Microsoft proud themselves for their brand new next gen consoles, and both claim to be the best in performance and overall gaming experience:
- Price: Both the Xbox Series X and the PS5 cost $499, while the Series S is priced at $299 and the PS5 Digital Edition costs $399. The latter 2 lack an optical drive to read discs, and the Series S’ SSD is half as large as the Series X.
- Backward compatibility: Both consoles offer almost all of their previous gen games on their gaming catalog, even though the Xbox Series X has an edge: With the same backward compatibility the Xbox One offered for Xbox 360 and original Xbox games.
- Performance: Next generation consoles are always judged by their power, speed and visual fidelity levels. Both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X & Series S have similar features in this sense, and it’s very difficult to declare a winner.
- Design: The PS5 is a towering machine, and is the biggest console Sony has ever built, while the Xbox Series X looks more like the design of gaming PCs thanks to its cuboid shape.
While both the PS5 and Xbox Series X & Series S are very powerful new consoles competing for the same market, they are both excellent options that offer 10-12 TFLOPS of graphical power and all of the load-time benefits that come from SSDs.
