Weekly Reflection: Week Eighty-Three

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

  • Impact – I had a conversation with a founder turned early-stage investor about impact. I’ve been thinking about it for over a year, but this conversation got me thinking about ways to maximize my impact.  
  • Working on me – I spent time this week working on myself. It was good to take a step back from working on stuff for others. I learned a lot of great things and can’t wait to implement them. I need to get back to doing this regularly.
  • One year – Had an enjoyable chat with a good friend this week. We discussed my theses today versus one year ago. He thinks I articulate my thoughts more clearly. I’ve also gotten more comfortable thinking through what the future will look like and why. It was nice to hear his feedback, and it forced me to think about how my thinking has evolved. What a difference a year makes.

Week eighty-three was great. I’ve gained a lot of clarity and learned some interesting new things. I’m reenergized and looking forward to next week.
