Simply Good: Year In Review

What. A. Year.

Of course, I don’t have to tell you that. We’ve all walked through a global pandemic, social unrest, economic crisis, and a highly-charged and divisive presidential election. When 2020 makes it into our history books, it will no doubt be a lengthy chapter.

However, we get to choose what posture we’ll take moving forward. We can dwell in the muck and the mire of an unprecedented year, or we can reflect on the goodness, tenacity, and revolutionary changes that have resulted from, or in spite of, these unfathomable circumstances. 

We at Rework Work are choosing the latter, which is why we’ve collected Simply Good’s top 10 articles of 2020. These stories are great reminders that trials can produce perseverance based on how we handle them, and with perseverance we can do powerful things.

 

Simply Good: Black History Edition

This February commemorates the United States’ 44th celebration of Black History Month. When President Gerald Ford first established its observance in 1976, he encouraged Americans to, “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” With that same spirit, we want to seize this opportunity to honor the accomplishments of just a few of the most prominent black history-changers today.
