Working from Home: Week Thirty

Today marked the end of my thirtieth week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week thirty:

Email management – I’ve written about my struggles with email here and here. This week, I began using Superhuman. So far, I like it. I’ve even gotten to inbox zero, which is a big deal to me. I’m not familiar with most of its features yet and I’m looking forward to learning more about them in the coming weeks. I hated responding to email from my phone, but Superhuman has changed that. I’m now aiming to handle most email by phone.

Next chapter – I caught up with a few founder friends this week. The next chapter was on the minds of a few of them. It seems that this is the season for people to ponder what they’ll work on next. I shared my experience—as I’m happy to do anytime—and I hope it was helpful.

September reflection – September was a month of transition and lots of new things. It was a bit hectic and, at times, overwhelming, but energizing as well. I’m looking forward to settling into my new normal in October.

Week thirty was a good week. The pace felt right and I have a better handle on things. Next week will mark seven months of working from home, which is hard to wrap my head around.

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