Working from Home: Week Thirty-Six

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

  • Thanksgiving rush – Unexpectedly, there was a Thanksgiving rush this week. Many people were trying to meet or wrap things up before next week. Busy, busy, busy! Note to self: plan for it to happen again before Christmas.
  • Giving back – I had an exciting opportunity: participating in a feedback session for a group of early entrepreneurs. This group will do well, and I’m looking forward to keeping in touch and helping them on their journey.
  • Zoom limits – I participated in two Zoom meetings this week that were four and five hours long. And I joined a few others that lasted an hour or more. The longer meetings were helpful for connecting with people and achieving goals, but they were brutal mentally. I can’t do more than one of these long meetings in a week anymore.  

Week thirty-six was busy. I’m glad it’s over and that next week is a holiday week. Some downtime will be good.

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