Weekly Reflection: Week Eighty-Six

Today marks the end of my eighty-sixth week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week eighty-six:

  • Holiday push – The week before a major holiday is always busy for me. Everyone is trying to push things over the finish line before the holiday. This week was no exception. I tried to plan my schedule accordingly, but I could have done some things better. I’ll manage my calendar better the week before Christmas.    
  • His way – I met with an investor this week who’s a hustler and has done things his way. He refuses to bend on his beliefs. It’s paying off for him; he’s proving everyone else wrong. Talking to him reinforced to me that there’s something to be said for standing by your beliefs, even when others question them.
  • Opportunity – I’ve been thinking about how others gave me opportunities in college and early in my career that changed my trajectory. I’m thinking about how lucky I’ve been and how to provide opportunity to others.

Week eighty-six was hectic. I’m tired and glad it’s over. Looking forward to the holiday next week and some time with friends and family.
