Working from home and being self motivated isn’t new to me. I’ve been self-employed for over 10 years and really enjoy working at my own pace. Yet lately, it seems like there are so many distractions that I find it hard to focus. It’s hard to not check the latest on the virus, to see what economists are predicting for the future, to see what my friends and family are up to on social media and how they’re coping with things, to listen to podcasts on the subject… it’s everywhere.
And yet I find myself planning for the future… and for the first time in over a decade, I applied for a full time job. In an office. Or at least, a virtual office. Gulp. Yet in order to keep a roof over our head and to keep us sleeping at night, it’s what feels right now. Alright Universe, let’s do this.
Many of us are stepping into the unknown and are unsure of what the future holds. So rather than hoping that things will get better, it’s time to step it up and take action.
