We are suffering from the Zoom fatigue forced upon us during the past year by the COVID-19 pandemic. But right now that’s not all we’re having to endure — pundit fatigue is becoming unbearable.
What will our business future look like as a result of this catastrophic worldwide event? No one really knows for sure. All we know is that we are being swamped by forecasts on a daily basis from so-called experts and pundits who don’t know much more about what will happen than we do.
One example: What percentage of white-collar workers will work via internet from home? Estimates of such work before the virus were about 10%, but some experts now think that it will settle out at about 25% in the future. At the risk of being called a pundit myself, I’d say that it’s not likely that the percentage will actually end up being that high.
