Good morning, Zurich startups and entrepreneurs!
Here we are in another work-from-home / remote / isolation / some-sort-of-lockdown week. It’s been tough. Some of you have been feeling isolated, many have been unable to see extended family, a few may have lost friends and loved ones. Concentration and focus might seem in short supply these days. Get outside and walk, rain or shine. Exercise if you can. Take up a new hobby with friends. Most of all, try to cut yourself some slack on the quantity and quality of work you’re undergoing. Whatever the work, it takes second place to your mental health.
Have a great week, and stay negative!
