However, this year we all stayed at home self-isolating in our own bubbles as we collectively work together to overcome the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic. Except for the few idiots about, all of us are making sacrifices as we stand united together in our own bubble to beat this virus. Being suddenly required to self-isolate and work from home has created both stresses and opportunities for how we do our work.
For some, working from home is the norm and it is business as usual, while for others it is a completely new working environment. Learning to engage and immerse ourselves in our work in a fully online environment, connecting in a meeting through video conferencing, creating space at home and then setting boundaries between home and workspaces are things we have been forced to manage, and I think we have adapted to this new way very quickly.
