Who doesn't know r-o-u-t-i-n-e these days when we're washing our hands every five minutes to the tune of:
Happy B'Day... including the verse:
"And many M-O-R-E" no less!
Perhaps, today that buzzword should be changed to Structure. It's probably a good thing N-O-T to be doing anything routine nowadays if you're operating a home studio/office. Not an easy task particularly when the landscape has changed by most estimates to less than 85 percent of what it used to be. Do you watch that behavior maybe tinker with it a little with an eye on designing a work flow. What kinda work flow? Dribs & drabs, only to change back with a healthier economy in a few months as a result of a managed pandemic. Hey what if it's more than a few months though. How do we literally work around that set up.
Well, working remotely for 20 years should account for something. But this is a whole new
dynamic (yep, we got one in there) that we're dealin with. That's why it's called relief.
Does that mean the New Norm will be a greater acceptance for more & more work from home? More & more Skype and Zoom sessions and such. Plus, not only will it be better for us humans, but it'll continue to make the air cleaner and less tax on major systems. Ah Oh. How's that gonna change things. Something suggests Not for the Better. BTW, we haven't heard a jet overhead in a while now. Holy Shit...we've turned into Socialists!!
So, in true R. Lee Ermey form; "Show me that you got a Pair" no no, that's not it. Here it is "Alright you maggots it's time for some discipline". No hangin out in our pajamas just because we can Skype with a dickie on. I want clean pits...teeth brushed. And no porn. Perhaps a regiment of Die Hard movies for the flow factor, but absolutely no Love Actually or Notting Hill.
Here's 20 years of working from home in a nutshell. Always be a few steps ahead of what you're doing today. 'Cause if you ain't, you're gonna have less to do tomorrow. Placing paths back to the factory. Bread crumbin it anyway you can. Cook once/Eat many.
There is no plan. But, if you have structure and stick to it to carry you through a day..a week...or an entire career, it could be the framework that's needed to be creative, productive and maintain a certainty of business flow into a daily schedule of work habits and strengths.
