Doing things differently or doing different things?

Derek Moore tweeted this, and it is a phrase that stuck with me – ‘doing things differently or doing different things?’

That’s an interesting play on words and, when you think about it, a very interesting way to look at what we’ve been doing for the last 20 months or so of the pandemic. Are we doing our work differently, or are we actually doing different things?

In the drive to ‘return to normal’ (I read that as going back to everything we did before the pandemic – what we did, the way we did, and why we did it like that) I see that as a deliberate action to not learn from what we’ve achieved, individually or institutionally, since March 2020. That requires us to ignore what we’ve gone through to ensure stability in that time. That means we’ve learned nothing, absolutely nothing.
