What has the pandemic taught you about your work?

  • I liked working from home; I don’t want to go back to the office.
  • What if there’s another shutdown and I’m forced to homeschool again? I don’t think my business/career can survive another round of that.
  • Can I redesign my career so that I can have a blend? I like the flexibility of working from home some of the time.
  • I really don’t want to enroll my children in all those activities again. Our family life is so much smoother when we’re not all running in different directions every night of the week.
  • My husband and I are closer than ever. I don’t want him (or me!) to go back to the stressed-out versions of ourselves that we used to be.
  • I honestly don’t know what’s real and what’s “Pandemic Brain” right now. I’m just going to ride it out and see what impressions settle and which ones sort themselves out.

1) Evaluate what worked during the work from home period

2) What didn’t work well?

3) What do you want to carry with you into this next phase of work/life?

4) What are your options?

5) Review your List

6) Which ones excite you the most?
