Things we couldn’t live without
Pancakes are finished and Lent begins, what could we not live without to keep us working?
As Lent begins today, at GRIN we’ve been thinking about what one thing has become indispensable when it comes to our work, that we would not be able to give up for Lent. This has become even more important as we continue to be work from home and need those little things to help make it all a little easier on ourselves. Here’s what the team said:
Scott – My additional computer monitors
Claire – My laptop
Ryan – My new desk space
Jen – Tea and Teams!
Video calls have become the norm for most businesses in the WFH environment. They ensure everyone is connected and provide an essential touchpoint in this bizarre and quite isolating time, and also enable GRIN to run in the collaborative and creative way the agency is accustomed to. That… and a morning brew to start the day off right… Nobody wants to talk to me before the tea that’s for sure!
Jon – After Effects plugin-ins
Phil – A home office
For someone who has worked at home for the last 12 years I was pretty well prepared for the Lockdown way of life. For me you have to have your own little office at home, not on the kitchen table, not in the lounge. The distractions are too tempting. Also have a lock on the office door so it feels like you can shut the work away in your house, it’s a strange thing but really works.
One thing I couldn’t live without in the home office is music, it’s a solitary life so the tunes really help!
