Working from Home: Week Forty

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

  • Countdown – With vaccinations beginning this week, I think there’s a mental shift happening. I had a lot of conversations with people who mentioned counting down. People see the light at the end of the tunnel.
  • Reshuffling – I’ve noticed that some days or weeks are heavy with commitments. This week was one of them. It was unintentional. When I noticed it, I made some adjustments to avoid overextending myself. Too often, I’ve pushed through these periods and felt drained when they were over.
  • More deals – This week it was announced that CallRail raised another $56 million. Atlanta tech companies are still seeing lots of activity. The holidays are here, but I expect more deals to be announced over the next few weeks.
  • Holiday – Christmas is next week, and I’m looking forward to the holiday and the extra downtime.

Week forty was busy, a big push before Christmas. Next week should be much slower—a good time to wrap things up before the end of the year.

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