Less alcohol, more pushups 😅 On a more serious note. I have found a new balance. Working from home allows me to spare more "me-time" (due to less driving). I work more on side-projects, I cook more, and I workout. Walking outside has never been so precious.

forced reflection because of broken routines. Also better oversight of what the kids are learning and what they enjoy about school.

@katerinabohlec I do agree: it pushed us to change the way we used to organize our days, weeks, etc. I guess you enjoyed the spent-time with your kids more than ever ;-)

Remote first, customer, quality driven.
It forced the remote work movement into the mainstream. This, in turn, caused people to adjust their priorities and redefine what it means to "go to work". I think the pandemic also helped people to not take some things for granted. Basic everyday things such as going out to eat, traveling and attending events now have more value.

@joegiglio See the Spotify example: people are now paid with their salary (based on their location) but can work from anywhere now! That's incredible! I miss pubs & restaurants so much... #Toulouse

This is an excellent question: I think for the people who come outta this pandemic, their baseline happiness would be much higher. Personally, I've learn to appreciate myself and what I've got. Realized the people who are truly there for me during my darkest time and also realizing you don't need anyone during these dark times because you're strong enough to handle anything life throws your way. Can't control what happens externally, but you can definitely control how you react and respond.

@jeff_zhang5 you're perfectly right! I think this crisis makes you aware of the relationships that are the most important for you, and those that gradually disappear

I'm terrified of public speaking, and now that everything is online I'm ready to talk to any event all day any day.

@angrigoryan__ well, I guess it's easier for you then! Maybe you'll soon be able to speak in public! 💪

It made me strategically manage my time and relationships, both professionally and personally, via all forms of communications! Having to heavily rely on digital communications, I realize the importance of prioritizing my time and relationships when circumstance and "outside activities" become less dominant ways to connect with people.

Nothing much changed for me personally because I always worked from home. But I saw two great things that happened in our city last year. First, they made a real beach (well, almost real, there was no sea) right in the center of the city. They said that since people couldn't go to real beaches, at least let them enjoy the sand and the sun here in the city. Second, they alllowed all cafes to place their tables everywhere on the streets, even on central squares, to help them recover their businesses. It was a really joyful atmosphere all around the city in May while we were getting back to normal from the first wave, I hope they do it again this time.

Open to network.
There are plenty. In fact, apart from the numerous death( which is a huge blow) I feel this pandemic has brought more positives. Like better organizations skills with the chores and errands, balance or rather work life integration, spending all day with my pet(dog love it),more video calls with loved ones, more time to learn and grow. Less people . I used to be an extrovert but now I have become more of an ambivert.

The worldwide responses to the COVID-19 induced pandemic has also introduced innovations that will advance the conduct of clinical research. For instance, Anti-viral treatment R&D has been prioritized and Regulatory and Institutional Review Board are expediting preparation, review and approval of clinical research.

Others have mentioned this already, but the first thing that comes to mind for me is that some huge names have taken remote work seriously. As someone who is hellbent on staying remote, it makes me hopeful for whatever my next job is!

@mmohammed_comms For my part, I'm not hellbent on staying remote, but I think the most important is to feel complete in work, and this also depends on your location!

@benoit_chambon That's a really good point. I suppose I feel most complete in work when I'm remote. Living in an area that has massive park spaces nearby for walking breaks is another remote-friendly perk for me haha
