It’s company policy to restart your computer before you leave work. Why? I imagine an effort to help protect client health records. At first, this annoyed me because I had to reopen my apps and my stories every day. That not only took time but precious brain power to remember what the heck I was doing. It’s bad enough to pick up in the middle of a story the next day, but don’t force me to start over before my first cup of coffee.
Usually, I’d start a quarterly review by doing a brief overview of my goals and then explain what I’ve done to move towards them. For the first time in the last several years, I don’t have any goals for the year though I will before the end of the month. The last three months have been a blur. I’ve been dealing with illness, deadlines, possible seasonal depression, car troubles, and work-life balance which I’m beginning to think doesn’t really exist.
