Working from home is actually fun, I have never been this productive, first I panicked and thought life would become miserable.
How am I supposed to work like this? I don’t want to be in advertising, I want to be a doctor on the frontline, or a scientist
busy looking for a vaccine to save the world.
I fought all these thoughts and looked at my briefs and had one to one session with myself. We need to stay in business, we need to spread positivity and find creative solutions for our clients to stay in the business too, here you go , you are saving people from losing their jobs. Yes the world needs our creative minds.
I wake up in the morning, sip my coffee, change my clothes and leave my room, I've created a small peaceful office space at home,
where I can practice yoga and work. Yoga is keeping me calm and sane. I think everyone should start practicing yoga these days , it's such a calming experience.
I set two meetings with my team. one in the morning and one at the end of our working day. I've met their families, their pets
their partners, I was overwhelmed by the kindness and support we give each other through this crisis.
I have more time to think alone and discuss ideas separately without the distractions of client servicing requests or the big
meeting rooms, everything is taking a different perspective right now. I think it will be difficult to go back to the office after all
this silence around me.
I feel more connected with my team, our ideas are full of emotions, and clients are becoming much more kind. I hope this at least
will stay the same. Being mean during work will only affect you as a person, we need more kindness and love in this industry.
