I think many of us can agree that one of the most overused words during this pandemic is “pivot.” It’s being used to illustrate the ability of people and organizations to change what they’re doing to prosper (or stay afloat) during this time. For the Galveston Convention & Visitors Bureau, pivoting has become something we’re getting used to doing.

This holiday season, we’re still pivoting.

An interesting start of a great article with this quote: I think many of us can agree that one of the most overused words during this pandemic is “pivot.”

The other "pandemic related term" is "navigate."

Somehow, in the midst of "all" the happenings in 2020, I have tended to concentrate on the use of words more that the content or reason for many postings. As such, I have been taken by the more than usual use of these two words "pivot" and "navigate." Just some interesting "pandemic" derivatives!
