Working from home: a year later

Image
It’s been a hard year for everyone. I thought I would post more on this blog in 2020. This did not happen. What I planned to post was not relevant anymore or I just didn’t have the energy or creativity to create post. March 23 is the one year of working at home. But not for the same employer as last year.

I have some lesson from that year of working from home.
