Today marked the end of my thirty-third week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week thirty-three:
- Election – Next week’s election is top of mind for me (and many others. I’m encouraged by the high voter turnout so far. More people are exercising their right to vote, which I love (regardless of their views).
- October – The month is over tomorrow, and it’s been a whirlwind. I’ve settled more into my second act as an investor and started to get into a groove that works for me. I still need to work on lots of things, but October was better than September.
- Points of failure – This week, many in Atlanta were without power because of Hurricane Zeta. It disrupted things, for sure. I’m now wondering how working from home and more points of failure at each worker’s home (e.g., power outages and internet connectivity issues) are interacting. Working from home is here to stay in some form, I believe, but large companies will be thinking about helping their teams mitigate these problems as much as possible.
Week thirty-three was a good week and October was a good month. Looking forward to finishing out the rest of the year strong, safe, and healthy!
I’ll continue to learn from this unique situation, adjust as necessary, and share my experience.
