One of the things I miss during this shelter-in-place is dining out in some of our favorite establishments in Truckee. The opportunity to try different dishes, drink new wines and enjoy excellent service are just some of the reasons why my wife and I love to dine out. While we can still enjoy good food and wine at home, we miss the human contact with the waitstaff who can make the dining experience relaxing and enjoyable.
I have a challenge for you.
Over the next 4 weeks, reach out to one person a day during the workweek with whom you have not had contact in at least the past 4 weeks.
No need to talk about business. In fact, I would recommend against it. Ask how they are holding up. What are they doing to keep their sanity? You might learn something about them that you did not know before.
By now, most of you are settling into your new work environment. Some have greater challenges than others. Whether being confined to a small city apartment or a household of children who now need to be homeschooled, this transition hasn’t been easy.
During these uncertain times, I find it healthy to reflect on upbeat memories. I recently recalled the feeling I had when I purchased my first car with my own money — a ’66 Mustang powered by a V8 289 engine. Pure joy! When properly maintained, it was a dream to drive.
