With so many things happening in the world right now, nothing feels right. I often find myself juggling between COVID-19 updates, thoughts for my family and our world and at the same time trying to concentrate on my work.
Most of the time these loops do not increase my level of knowledge but definitely increase my anxiety. The good thing though, is that more than often I feel there is a community out there. We are apart but we are connected too.
This “connection” gives me the opportunity to read awesome stories from people that work remotely or had to do the change and I keep many of these in my swipe files for reference and reading.
I decided to make this swipe file a public “leaving document” and have it as a post here. I hope you will find it useful.
If you find interesting and noteworthy resources please share it in the comments and I can add them in here.
Stay strong, stay safe, we will win this!
