catch the experiences
homeplaceofthefuture daily log 4988
I've been reading tweets & blogs from writers I admire and a common theme that I've come across is something called "catch the experiences" in relation to how to come up with new material.
Honestly in the workplaceofthepast it was so easy to come up with material. Experiences like elevator banter, passive-aggressive signage and having my lunch stolen were regular occurrences. Seeing people in corporate culture is an entirely different show and it was super easy to complain and make observations.
Now that we're in the future what type of experiences am I catching as a virtual employee who never leaves the house? Experiences seem more like questions that come across my mind everyday when it is hard to focus on my J-O-B.
Work from home everyone and "catch those experiences"
focus on that nap

Even the most organized & 'on it' virtual employee has problems with focusing at the task at the hand. It could be a day or a week -- this is one of those weeks for me. The Europeans are back from their summer holidays and the kids are back in school and per the usual the workload is piling up. Most days we can manage and we get the work done, this week however is not one of those weeks.
I'll say it best with a quote I heard once "When you have so much to do and you decide to take a nap instead." That's been this week, family issues, car issues, health issues and all while the emails keep coming in, the texts are pouring in and everything is marked URGENT! Like I've said in previous posts when you ignore people long enough they pick up the phone and call and well the phone has been ringing off the hook this week because the homeplaceofthefuture hasn't been as responsive to my 300 emails a day.
