Weekly Reflection: Week Fifty-Five

Today marks the end of my fifty-fifth week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week fifty-five:

  • Transferable skills – A friend asked me to help with something. I initially said I didn’t have the experience to do it (which was true). He pointed out that I have skills that are transferable and that qualify me to help him. I don’t often think in terms of transferable skills, but my friend was right, and I was able to add a lot of value to his project.
  • Good enough – This week was a reminder that sometimes things just need to be good enough to check the box. Done is better than perfect. I have to continually remind myself of that.
  • Journeys – Everyone has a story. It’s so interesting to learn about someone else’s. This week I was totally surprised by the journeys that some have taken.  

Week fifty-five was a rewarding one. I was able to move the needle on things that matter to me and help others too. The week was a win–win.
