Working from Home: Week Seventeen

Last Friday marked the end of my seventeenth week of working from home. Here are my takeaways from week seventeen:

  • Path forward – I had good conversations about the future. I’m far from the only person thinking about what the rest of 2020 and 2021 will look like. People are mulling over how they can achieve their goals in creative ways given the pandemic.
  • New companies – Lately I’ve spoken with many entrepreneurs who are working on starting businesses. I predict a surge of new companies in the next twelve to twenty-four months. Some of them will have a big impact on society. There are so many needs not being satisfied right now. The masses are actively seeking out new things to adopt—what a rare opportunity for entrepreneurs.
  • Redistribution – The pandemic’s impact on commerce is uneven. Some sectors are thriving and having their best year ever. Others are struggling and businesses may shutter. A redistribution may be ongoing.

Week seventeen was a positive week. I paid attention to trends and stopped projecting what I think should be happening. I also thought more about how to move forward if the current situation is the new normal.  

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