COVID-19 is affecting almost everyone. A quick look at the stats here and the number of cases around the world are on a constant rise.
The pandemic also means that many of us are now working from home. Although a good thing for the greater good, I hope all employers are lenient with their employees for a few weeks while they come to terms with the new way of working.
Having worked from home the last ten years and now from an office, I thought I would share my experience working from home the previous week.
Working from home the last week has been stressful vs before the pandemic. Working from home before was a choice, and the mind did not go racing thinking about the future. Your future, your family and friends future, the future of your work and the future of the entire world.
Working from home is not the same now. For a lot of people, it means having to juggle family life, looking after kids, looking after parents while also concentrating on getting work done.
I see a lot of tips and tricks on getting work done from home, and some of them are quite helpful, but I do agree with this twitter thread.
Having been not so productive the last week, here is my plan to get more work done in the coming weeks.
Get ready and start work by 8:30. Means waking up a bit early to make breakfast.
Stay away from the news. If I achieve this one thing, I think I will be a lot more productive in the coming weeks.
Focus on one thing and spend 30 mins just working on that task before walking around the house for a short break.
That’s it for now. I hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe and healthy. Take care 🤗
