Upgrading and Reinventing Ourselves for Ourselves

Hello people!


Does anyone else feel that re-inventing the way the majority of workforce is held (remote at-home) has given you people (funny, not derogatory) the opportunity to re-invent yourselves? Sure, we can all say we are all good at something but have you tried something else? Have you had the chance to start new from a different angle. Expanding your horizons and adding a new touch? Have you met the other side of you during this time? I'm new to the whole work from home thing and so its given me a lot of time to ruminate and ACTUALLY put my ideas on a white board and PHYSICALLY SEE IT. (side note) Has anyone turned Jeff Bezos from working a remote job? Probably, and what he probably had was solitude, comfort of his own safe space and his own ideas. Have you had any revelations since working from home? How has that changed the way you see the workforce today?

All I can say is that it would be really damn hard to move away from full remote

I go on a lot more walks during the day and have more time for my mental and physical health.

It was really hard in the beginning to separate work from home, but having a good structure and boundaries helps. Once I'm done with my work, I like to workout, watch documentaries, read and sometime take an edible and go on nature walks.

But yeah, no way I'd go back to an office at this point. Other than traveling for conferences here and there, I'm enjoying having full control of my day.

Wow, thatโ€™s really great for self improvement, especially after all the craziness that has happened- it keeps you grounded. Keeps you original Iโ€™m sure you had time to think of the other possibilities out there for yourself - outside from what your doing now, no?

Not really. I do enjoy the space WFH gives me for reading and reflection - but I'm not putting the pressure on myself to do anything radical as a result. I'm honestly still in recovery mode from Covid and the "new normal."

Same, i think thats where im at right now at this current stage. im not all that enthusiastic about jumping back out there after being part of a skeleton crew for 2 years (covid) , for me its more about how i can use this time wisely to somehow maximize income and really allowing some room in my brain rather than the day to day of things at a job kind of take over, you know? thank you for the feedback though recovery mode seems to be a real thing

I read more, reflect more, get outside more, chill with friends & fam on weeknights more. A whole lot of working on myself, though I think remote work has just given me more flexibility. Sticking to a routine and good habits consistently is still hard. Also if Iโ€™m tired at 2pm, I lay down lol.

I will add- not sure how I did what I did before. Feel like I wouldnโ€™t be able to get back to 5 days in office + hours of commuting

Lol it sounds like work, life balance to me. thatโ€™s really good, Iโ€™m glad you were able to achieve that and still give yourself permission that if you need to lay down you can- lol not at the office thatโ€™s weird unless you work in a place that has sleep pods - you know the jobs that care for their employees lol jk jk, but seriously itโ€™s a good investment - sleeper pods!

Having worked from home for a VERY long time, this concept doesn't really apply to me, but I have seen it in others. My take - don't wait to reinvent yourself if you feel you need that. Just do it.

I'm still digesting and formulating a response.

And I encourage you to look at some other commentary on the site before you comment on other's postings - you may get a better sense of what you can expect.
