Doug, what about when your desk/workspace is in the middle of an open planned living space 😱
I remember being told early on that you need to draw lines. If only. I have had to support our daughter who has been learning from home, while our open-planned house is not easily ‘locked off’. It is a bit different with schools returning in Australia, but a part of me wonders if this will have a return to people looking for houses with a study/work space?
I loved I Am Not an Animal. It was one of my favourite comedies. There are times of late when I have felt like the rabbit in the call centre.
asked the question, what have you learned from living in lockdown? I have learnt that it is very difficult to do ‘deep work’ , especially when you are trying to work in a shared space. It can be easy to say you , but I have found
The coronavirus has brought about a change where I have worked at home this week. What has been interesting is that although the physical space is different, what has stood out has been the implied responsibility and autonomy. I have missed speaking w/ colleagues whenever required, however it has made me more mindful of how I communicate.
After a frenetic few weeks, I was discussing the challenge of change management with a colleague and how my current role differs from being in the classroom. He said that I was more than a teacher delivers prescribed material, that my efforts to not only solve problems, but also build confidence and understanding make me an educator. I think that is where the challenge is. Think kind of has me thinking about Solo Taxonomy.
Plenty to think about in this piece Doug, thank you. My only question is where family fits within all this? Always something to consider.
