In mid of 2020 while I resumed my work after 3 and half month break , I found myself struggling with home working for online meetings or conf calls or even remote working with my colleagues.
The idea of being hidden behind the computer , not sharing my coffee breaks or chitchats or lunch breaks with colleagues and friends at work or no human contact in general was intimidating.
Soon I adjusted to it then I started liking it and now it’s like being in love with it. I rather now have nightmares of going back to usual work life .
I now can plan my breakfast otherwise was skipping or eating a toast on train, cook myself a fresh lunch which used to be leftovers in a lunchbox warmed at work and an early dinner, no time wasted in travelling. I can even use that extra time to sleep a bit extra in mornings .
I got so much time to spend with my son and my family this year which otherwise couldn’t be possible. ( sometimes it gets difficult too when he comes running in between of a meeting shouting mummy mummy )
I think it also taught me to be more responsible and to manage my work time better with no body really minding a team , after all we are all adults . We don’t really need bosses to watch us all the time. It has definitely evolved a new level of leadership – self leadership.
For all of this and more I am truly grateful for 2020 .
