Working from Home: Week Fourteen

Today marked the end of my fourteenth week of working from home. Here are my takeaways from week fourteen:

  • Relationships – I learned how past relationships and associations are relevant today. I’m thankful and appreciative. I’m actively looking to give back to the organizations that gave me the opportunity to build those relationships. Excited about paying it forward!
  • Why – Clearly understanding why I do the things I do is extremely helpful. That self-knowledge helped me successfully navigate a few important conversations. I want to continue using my why as my compass.
  • New work normal – I watched the uptick in COVID-19 cases and decided to work from home. I’ll monitor the numbers this coming week and reassess.
  • Screen fatigue – My eyes are tired after long Zoom sessions. They actually hurt sometimes. I started taking breaks and going for walks when I feel my eyes tiring.

Week fourteen was a good one. It confirmed that doing things for the right reasons is important. I’m glad my why drives me.

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