In March of 2020, most of the world―along with our politicians―panicked. When presented with an unfamiliar threat in the form of the novel coronavirus, life as we knew it shut down. Without having a plan, we responded in a panic, with no understanding of the true risk to our health or our economy. Our collective reaction to the virus points to one crucial factor: We as a society do not question what we are told―potentially to our own detriment.
This book is not about pointing fingers and laying blame. It is about building an inquisitive spirit and forming our own opinions through critical thinking. It is about considering how to achieve success in a new way going forward.
In Iconoclasm: A Survival Guide for the Post-Pandemic Economy, author and iconoclast Tony Zorc outlines the strategies and insights of iconoclasm and how to not only survive but thrive in the post-pandemic economy.
Iconoclasm is about unlocking doors that seem to be shut―and ushering everyone through them. In these pages as you learn about the methodology of the iconoclast, you’ll discover the key to unlocking success in the current and post-pandemic panic economy, professionally and personally.
