Hope you are doing well and safe.
We are alternating at work so we don’t be in all of us at the same time. If this stays for long, I am planning to:
1) Do more marketing for my own coaching business.
2) Study for my professional development exams this year.
How about you ?
Pretty much the same as I've been doing for the last couple of years since switching over to teaching - giving back to the PM community, working out, working on my pool game, baking and (once the weather improves) going out for long walks and playing golf. Oh yeah, and a bit of Netflix binge-watching too :-)
We have been working remote since 10-days ago and mandated to self-quarantine so from the last few days.
- It is easier to find time to run, either during old commute hours or by using lunch.
- We are moving, so more time for packing and touchups
- Bonfires with the fam
- Need to upgrade my SAFe SA to 5.0 :)
Interestingly enough, I have spent less time 'connected' (as in being online) since being remote.
Well, as a retiree, I was not 100% busy before as many of you.
I luckily finished my onsite university lectures end of February as to schedule.
- spent much time to observe this disruption to materialize - once in a lifetime opportunity
- continue to mentor some people, had several long calls with someone preparing for a job interview the last 10 days
- working on a webinar for the PMI North Italy Chapter, they offer (almost) daily lunch webinars - topic 'how to become a good person'
- enabled family video conferences
- reading Kahneman till the end - very good book
- over the weekend attended a hackathon of the German government with 43K people and 1500 ideas to pursue #wirvsvirus.
- starting a plan with whom to stay in regular virtual contact, especially people living alone who might develop isolation symptoms over time (up to suicides, this might help: driven-resilience app)
- monitoring my health with OURA (e.g. my nightly respiration rate)
We have been working remote for longer than the COVID-19 came out, but I would always go into the office every so often to break the routine. Here are some things I do while working remote that seems to help.
-Reading, I seem to be reading a lot more than normal and a wide variety of topics. Not just educational, but fiction as well.
-I work out twice a day. I do some routines during lunch, instead of work and at night before bed.
-I do chores. The time in which I would normally run to the breakroom, I now will do some dishes, or do some laundry. If that is all caught up I might dust or vacuum a room.
-I am cooking more than I did when working remotely or in the office, as I prep meals during the last hour I am logged into work.
