Today is officially two years of working from home for the pandemic. Did we ever think we’d get to this point? Two years later and still dealing with the pandemic? Many of us still working from home, some back in the office. But safe to say, its been a shit show of a ride. There is little light at the end of the tunnel and it appears that we might finally, maybe, possibly, getting to the end of this thing.
The Theme System In case you have missed it back in 2020, I’ve decided to switch from the usual goals for a year to a theme. Yes, there are areas for measurement for success in some of these areas. But the reason behind the theme is its flexible and can be adapted to many different things. Its more about making choices and having some momentum towards a certain change in my life that I’d like to make.
In case you missed it at the beginning of the year, for me, this is the year of health. As usual, this is my mid year check-in to see how I am progressing. What did we want to see again? In case you don’t want to go back and read the article, there were a few things that I wanted to see improved. The great thing about a theme is you are not necessarily locked into improving certain metrics by making a certain number.
It is time to kick things off. I’ve been messing around as a hobby turning pens and other things and several people have wondered if and when I would put something up for sale. Well, that time is now.
I remember it pretty clearly, walking out one day with my boss and the question from him was basically… “Are we really going to lock this place down for this?”. We of coarse did…as much as we could as we still had to keep the lights on. We went down to essential staffing and for the most part, I’ve been working from home for 500 days total. This isn’t all work days, this is actual calendar days since 3/17/2020 when I started the lock down.
