🎧 found loads of tunes this week and it's a bumper playlist as I missed a week of weeknotes. A chiptune remix album of In Flames' I, The Mask was fun.
📖 started Simon Sinek's The Infinite Game. I hate the fact I like Sinek. I just find his words so accessible and energising urgh
🏃🏽♂️Again, no exercise. Did my back in and my knee is wrecking. Paraphrasing my physio here but he said it's because I've not been doing anything that is making my pain worse.
🧘🏼♂️ one morning of meditation. So. Many. Meetings. Week 11 was in full coronavirus anxiety and WFH. Usually I'm really productive at home on a Friday but struggled this week. Booked some holidays so feel less stressed.
🕴 sat in on 3 pitches from agencies in week 10. it's interesting being the other side of the fence (I used to work agency side). It's likely our problem, but it took a few emails asking question to get a clearer idea of their design capability. Agencies: please, question our brief, pick it apart, challenge us and for fucks sake show some pictures of the work in your case studies.
🗣 this week was the end of 3 weeks of epic, huge blocks of meetings. A lot of it around resourcing and how we work as an org. I'm glad these have finished tbh, I've felt very detached from the actual work.
🏡 with the coronavirus outbreak I've kept myself at home 3 days of 10. Just as a test and to keep my cough away from people. I've always turned my nose up at remote working as I don't believe you can truly collaborate even with new fangled toys. I still think it's hard, but it's been fun to poke at it and see. It was great to do the Membership Friday Show and Tell remotely.
🔮 whatever I've thought previously though, there is no denying that the way we work is going to change forever after this.
