Lockdown & Post-Lockdown Work Thoughts

On Thursday May 28, 2020 we were informed that it was time to return to working from the office starting Monday June 1, 2002.

Initally I was in shock looking at the traffic situation in Kampala, that was happening from the partial lifting of the travel ban, from Tuesday May 26, 2020 after almost 2 months of lockdown. I would say I am one of the lucky ones, I was ready for the lockdown, having setup my own little office in a corner of the house, complete with a table and working chair plus a steady Internet connection so I was in heaven for 2 months.

I got the equivalent of the Monday blues, that many people face, I for one love Mondays as the first day of the week and my first chance to be awesome :-). I felt sick thinking of what I would be doing in the 2.5 hours commute time, how more productive I would be and what else I would be doing.

However on further thoughts maybe that is not so bad, after all now its a chance to alter my schedule, and include forced breaks which are my commute, and suddenly things do not feel so bad afterall. I remembered that I am the eternal optimist, always looking for the silver lining in the dark cloud, so probably this is it.

I am so looking forward to Monday, its amazing how perspective and attitude are important in how we respond to the only constant change

Well it is a new day, Friday my 3rd favorite day of the week, woke up at 3am and failed to go back so I decided to start my day early after all it is now a luxury to be savored and enjoyed

What are your back to work, new normal experiences
