This weekend’s SubscribeStar Saturday is a bit delayed due to some increased family time, particularly the celebration of my nephew’s third birthday. One of the upsides to this disastrous coronavirus situation has been the sudden renewal of home life.
As we’ve reoriented our attitudes about and our relationships to work in such a dramatic way, the increased time at home and with loved ones has really highlighted how much happier our lives can be with the proper work-life balance. Indeed, I’ve been more energized in my work than I have been in years in part because of the greater flexibility this otherwise terrible plague has afforded.
I’m cautiously optimistic that this shift could be more enduring than a couple of months of social distancing. Indeed, “social distancing” may very well result in a renaissance of family togetherness.
