2020, what a rough year it has been. Nobody would have expected 2020 to turn out as it did, especially how COVID-19 has affected the entire world. However, through all the tough times, 2020 has also taught us many valuable lessons that we can learn from. These lessons, as listed down below, can help us to better prepare ourselves for whatever may happen in 2021.

  1. 1. Out with the Old, In with the New

COVID-19 has brought about significant changes to not just our families and communities, but also various businesses. We have seen an increase of companies transitioning to digital practices and having employees work from home. Even as we move into 2021, changes are still being implemented as companies are trying new ideas and coming up with more creative ways to conduct their business.

Many companies are also shifting to online platforms and e-commerce channels to conduct their business. As a result, there is a higher demand for storage spaces for such companies in order for them to store their products safely.

Furthermore, storers do not have to worry about their products getting damaged as there is insurance coverage as well. Each storer will have their own personalized access code to ensure their items are safely secured in our storage facility.

  1. 2. Nothing is more important than Self-care

A new year means it is time for you to do some tidying up and decluttering of your homes. Due to COVID-19, many people have been stuck in their homes for months and this causes clutter to occur. Studies has shown that clutter can cause a great amount of stress and has other negative impacts on your life. By decluttering and clearing out your old items, this will allow you to have more space in your homes and provide a greater peace of mind.

If you have any keepsake items that you are unwilling to get rid of, why not store it in self-storage facilities instead?

  1. 3. The best time is Now, not Later

Looking back, 2020 has definitely been one of the hardest years in recent times. However, it has also made us understand one important thing, which is to never take anything for granted. If you are thinking of trying something new for the first time or starting your own business, don’t hesitate any longer. There is no point waiting for the right moment because you will never know how much time you have. Changes will always be constant, which is why the best thing you can do is to trust yourself and make use of whatever opportunities at present.

With 2020 firmly in hindsight, it is important that we do not get complacent and assume 2021 will be better. We should keep these lessons in mind and continuously find new ways to innovate and improve further.
