Some thoughts on COVID-19, being #FutureReady and 2021

In the early days of what we now call COVID-19, I saw the meme below. It made me laugh out loud. It was so accurate!

The only problem is, as with most memes, it turned out not be as true, accurate, and funny as I had first thought.

In 2020 I ended up working from home 174 days. Others that I know, especially those in Melbourne, ended up working from home a lot more (if that’s possible).

But here’s the thing,

We should be thanking the CTO, CIO, and Head of KM. They did an amazing job in 2020. I hope they get amazing bonuses.

In the meantime, let’s go out there, and enjoy what challenges the year ahead brings us (without trying to predict a thing!).
