I’m totally empathetic to people that miss offices and traveling. I understand your reasons why, I truly do.

For me personally, after non-stop weekly travel for 4 straight years, not traveling has made me realize how much I enjoy being home. Spending time with family, sleeping in your own bed, consistent exercise schedule, etc.

I for one hope consulting becomes more of a hybrid travel model (i.e. travel 1-2x per month or as needed). Else it won’t be for me.

Anyways, just some thoughts.

For the past few months, people have been praising police officers and other front line workers. But now, a sudden turn of events.

There is a problem, but let’s not criminalize the heroic police officers for the racist acts of some individuals. The best solution, in my opinion, is that we need to specify the problem and resolve it by appropriate action on those individuals. That officer needs to be tried in court for murder to provide justice for what he did. But let’s not punish every officer.
