Back into the woods?

Published on:

I really thought we had turned the corner. Stores and restaurants started to open. Granted, we’re all wearing masks, but I’ll take progress anywhere I can find it. I even managed to get a real haircut. On top of that, Seattle’s Junuary seemed less rainy than in years past, but maybe I'm just excited to be outside regardless of the weather. And just when I thought we're out of the woods, the numbers started to spike in all sorts of places. In another time and place, it would be tempting to be smug, but this thing knows no boundaries and we're all in this together. Into the woods again.

Fun fact: when I went to see Into the Woods with my girls, no one told me it was a musical :(

A few ideas to make this time more pleasant.

Don’t get caught up in the time you spend online. Emphasize outcomes rather than hours. In the office, we measured our performance by time -- when we arrived to when we left. At home, it’s no longer about how many hours we spend at the desk; it’s about what gets accomplished. Admittedly, this can be tricky when we’re talking about billable hours, but if you’re like me, you’re online plenty.

Keep trying new things. By now, it’s easy to assume that we’ve got it all sorted. Our routine is tip top. We’ve created good Feng Shui in our workspace. The dog gets three long walks. We’ve discovered the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. But there’s still room for improvement — if only to switch things up. Don’t stop experimenting.
