Kalí méra, my friends – I hope you’re not going nuts just yet.
These days, a lot of folks in the Summit’s community are in the process of quitting something: coffee, alcohol, LinkedIn, old messenger apps, you name it… Which makes a lot of sense, of course, given the increased demand on the time that all of us are currently facing.
With the transition to working remotely, it seems that not only do we all work more per se, but also that we’ve mastered the trick of jumping from playing with kids to talking to peers in just a few seconds. Which is the mental equivalent of having a ristretto at the start of a marathon, really.
The need to be more efficient is everywhere.
Take the kid, grab the dog, drop in on the team call – and don’t forget to mute yourself while buying cheese and reviewing a shared board in parallel.
Oh, what a luxury it was to be engaged in just one thing at one time.
And how much am I looking forward to the next real-life Summit, where we can bask under the real sun over some real coffee with the implied reassurance that nobody signs off between two sips to join yet another Zoom room… Inshallah, this is exactly what happens five months from now.
