Weekly Reflection: Week Forty-One

Today marks the end of my forty-first week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week forty-one:

  • Weekly reflection – These weekly posts were originally intended to document my experience of working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ve done that and more. They’re now a way for me to reflect on the week, which I really enjoy. I’m renaming them to reflect this evolution.  
  • 2021 – This year is off to a crazy start. I was mentally exhausted from all the extremes in 2020. I hope these first five business days aren’t an indication of what we can expect for the rest of the year.
  • More deals – This week Salesloft raised $100M at a $1.1B valuation. Another great Atlanta company doing a huge deal! I expect we’ll see more deals in the first quarter.
  • Slow start – I had almost two weeks off and it was hard to get back into the swing of things this week for a variety of reasons.

Week forty-one was a crazy busy week. I’m hopeful that it will turn out to be the exception rather than the norm.

I’ll continue to learn from this unique situation, adjust as necessary, and share my experience.
