TOMORROW is One Year?!?

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Sixty Four]

It’s hard to believe that the Dutch Lockdown started one year ago tomorrow.

But first the news:

Since I’ve been running at 100% with three interviews per day for three days now, today, with only one interview, was SUPER weird.

I picked up First Minion from school. And took him to his appointment. And folded clothes. And was a bit bored, if I’m honest.

I guess this is what unemployment is like?

I don’t like it.

Tomorrow I have three interviews scheduled, with another one possible, so I won’t start tomorrow but on days when I don’t have many interviews, I need to figure out a better engagement with plenty of work, play, and compassion.

And when I say ‘work’ I don’t mean for Equinix Metal anymore, but for my brand – filling in the holes in my knowledge and building on the infrastructure I started with the Farmer Project – studying tech and leadership and getting fit and such.

And yet, still including play – escape rooms and relaxing and reading sci fi – maintaining the self care and the joy. Even more than usual, I need to strengthen resiliency and remain consistent.

Which is why there’s compassion.

Softly, gently, yet firmly, with love and grace, moving forward and taking care of myself so that I can better take care of others.

Wish me luck.
