When I titled a blog “Strange Days” two weeks ago, I didn’t realize that it would be the first in a series.
In Strange Days: Dealing with COVID-19, we started out with some best practices and templates, then expanded to more reflections and ideas last week in Strange Days: The New Normal. Now, as this situation evolves, we’re continuing the conversation on our most important homework: home work.
Our internal weekly WFH pulse check continues, and this week we learned about our team members’ challenges and solutions.
As YouTube’s Stay Home #WithMe PSA campaign reminds us, the best place to go is nowhere at all. With that in mind, many of our team members are turning to online content to stay active. Beyond Netflix and other streaming services, I’ve been hearing over and again about those around me trying out Cosmic Kids Yoga, watching home improvement and exercise tutorials, and trying out new recipes.
I made banana bread this weekend, and mentioned it off-hand during a meeting this morning. Imagine my surprise when I learned that half of those on the call had baked and/or eaten homemade banana bread within the last week. Imagine my continued surprise to find that banana bread is trending as #QuarantineBread. Finally — I’m trendy!
