5. Invest in property and not a luxury
This one of the most important lessons learned in 2020. So far, it hits differently among various people. No one could ever think on a single time that the world could be put under temporary closure and many businesses come to a standstill. It is at this time that many people stayed at home and where possible working from home. Having that the economy really declined this means that money was a problem to meet our rent. Many people got locked out while others preferred staying at their upcountry homes. Investing in real estate and somewhere that you can call home will never go wrong for decades.

10. Beyond employment
Trust how this statement predicted every point of life. That is, “Do put all your eggs in one basket“. If you know its deep meaning beyond the surface meaning. This is an alarming alert mostly to those who are on employment programs. I would recommend you do a purchase of beyond 8 to 5 book. Learn to have your personal ventures beside your main employment. It might be your employer’s pleasure to keep you but some circumstances are beyond exemption.
11. Humanitarian is priceless
You do not need a degree, be a celebrity or a politician to be a humanitarian. In times of pandemic, everyone is their brothers and sisters keeper. Help those who are in need. Give to the less fortunate. Donate if you are in such a position. Clothe the naked. Sharing is caring. Remember, no one is safe until we are all safe. If you help just a single person you have changed their whole world forever. Learn to give with charity.
12. Oxygen is the premium natural resource
The truth is the Coronavirus mostly affects the respiratory system of human beings. One dies due to a lack of enough oxygen in their blood system. If a Covid-19 patient is put in the oxygen machine, this is to facilitate pumping in oxygenated air to the damaged respiratory system. Isn’t human being the only super living organism in the whole world? This makes OXYGEN the most precious natural resource from the Almighty to mankind.
