How would you describe your time working from home because of lockdown in 5 words?
It was challenging without school!
What was the best thing you did for your own well-being in the past few months?
I have started running again and am now doing 4k before breakfast several times a week. It’s been great for my mental health and gives me space to think about the day ahead.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
I’ve got a quote from Millicent Fawcett on my office wall which says ‘Courage calls to courage everywhere, and its voice cannot be denied.’ Digital change can feel scary and different and that quote reminds me to be brave and hold my nerve.
What was your favourite digital discovery this year?
I have got into podcasts even more and love The High Low, How to Fail and Eat Sleep Work Repeat.
If you had to leave a message to yourself to read a year from now, what would it be?
Now is the time to do your best work
