FOCUS ON WORK, FROM HOME

Post available in English and Romanian

De cand a inceput criza COVID-19, pentru multi a fost din ce in ce mai greu sa distanteze viata personala de cea profesionala. Angajatii care pot lucra de acasa au inceput sa se adapteze la noua normalitate. Beneficiile, cel putin pentru mine sunt multe. Imi place ca ajung din dormitor la birou in doar cinci minute. La revedere, mijloace de transport aglomerate! Alte beneficii includ programul flexibil, sentimentul de siguranta de acasa si haine comode.

Sunt si persoane care isi pierd repede concentrarea acasa. Iata cum ma descurc eu.

Balancing personal and work life has never been harder since the COVID-19 crisis started. The employees that can perform their jobs from home started to slowly adjust to the new normal. The benefits, at least for me, are many. My favorite perk is being able to travel from my bedroom to my office in no more than five minutes. So long, pesky commute! Other benefits include a more flexible schedule, the safe feeling of your own home, or a comfy outfit.

But some people can get easily distracted by this familiar environment. Here’s how I remain focused.

LIVING WITH A CHRONIC ILLNESS

This post is available in English and Romanian

Boala, fie ca e vorba de o afectiune acuta care supara doar pe moment, sau de o suferinta cronica de durata, ajunge inevitabil sa ne fie partenera de viata tuturor. Unii sunt norocosi si ies repede din relatia cu Boala. Altii raman legati pe viata de Boala intr-o relatie toxica si plina de neprevazut. Cine a avut ghinionul sa se imprieteneasca cu Boala in Romania, stie ca are toate sansele ca suferinta sa sa se dubleze din cauza lipsurilor din sistem. Lipsuri care de ani buni sunt ignorate de cei care conduc Romania prin rotatie. Doar chipul si numele sunt diferite. In esenta, ei sunt aproape toti o apa si un pamant. “Animale” politice (de fapt a-i numi asa este o jignire adusa regnului animal) care nu cunosc omenia si empatia.

The Disease, be it an acute affection that manifests itself for the moment, or a long time chronic illness, is inevitably sometimes a life partner for all of us. Some are lucky and leave this relationship quickly. Others, learn to live with the Disease, in a toxic and restless relationship. Whoever had the misfortune to befriend a Disease in Romania, knows their suffering can be doubled by the lack of conditions in the health system. Shortages that for too long now are purposely ignored by those who rule Romania by rotation. Only their faces and names are different. Essentially, they are one and the same. Political “animals” (calling them this is an offense to the animal kingdom) that do not know humanity and empathy.

UN AN NOU MAI ORGANIZAT / PLANNING AND ORGANIZING IN THE NEW YEAR

Post available in English and Romanian
Organizarea e unul dintre punctele mele forte. Imi place sa fac liste, sa planific din timp tot ce am de făcut intr-o saptamana, luna sau an. Nu mai plec nicaieri fara planner-ul meu si desi exista zeci de aplicatii pentru telefon, in continuare prefer sa ma bazez pe agenda mea. Voi ce alegeti? Being organized is one of my strong points. I love writing lists and keeping track of what I have to do on daily or monthly basis. I don’t leave the house anymore without my planner and even if I have the option to use a phone app, I prefer the classic agenda. What’s your choice when it comes to planning?
