April 2, 2020-
Never let it be said that I have it all together. Each day brings its share of little victories, but there are also those times when I’m all thumbs. Each flub, though, brings a lesson.
This morning, I found myself in front of my laptop screen, trying to take part in an online Yoga class, while keeping myself visible on the Zoom screen AND Keeping the laptop plugged in. It was a comedy of errors, which I’m glad the instructor could not see.
SOLUTION: For the next session, whenever that is, I will simply bring the laptop and power cord over to my floor-based power strip, and make myself both visible and ready to roll.
I was up until midnight, waiting for a Facebook Live, which never showed, so my equilibrium was a bit off, and I napped longer, mid-afternoon, than I had planned, thus missing a Zoom call that WAS showing.
SOLUTION: Don’t stay up until midnight, for a definite maybe. Find someone who was on the call, OTHER THAN the host, and get an update.
I kept forgetting what Zoom call was going to be when.
SOLUTION: The big whiteboard that I had bought in December, for travel planning, is now my Zoom Calendar board. I also keep a Google calendar, for good measure.
Small matters, but they do impart lessons, for what may become larger events, when one has to be “on-game” much of the time.
