After a year focused on improving my remote skills, changing the company where I work for 13 years for a Full Remote job as Engineering Manager in Packlink Engineering and navigating this COVID constant changes, those are my personal goals for 2021.
Full remote socialization
I want to be able to build strong relations at work even if I’m full remote. Be able to have those casual conversations with my work colleagues and feel connected , even if we are miles away.
Healthy balance of Work, Personal & Family time
I will be working at home most of the time and that will be a challenge for me. I want to find a good rhythm to have clear boundaries of work/non-work time but also find the way to have time for my things (singing, running, bike, sketchnoting, … )
Some years ago I read this inspiring article from Cristiane (Coca) Pitzer and after some tests I will like to improve a lot on how we organize our 5 members family. Making the kids more participant on the decision and keep riding the kaos with a smile.
My wife send me this articles ( ecobnb / greenpeace ) , and as a responsible of cooking at home, I can not delay more the idea to reduce the amount of meat in our diet. It’s healthier but above anything else, I don’t want to contribute in the destruction of my kids planet.
Last year we started a plan to do one family hiking day per month, but COVID stop it. This year I want to restart this monthly hiking initiative, discovering new paths and having an easy setup for the whole family so it’s easier to just go out to the mountains.
