2020 has been a tough year for many, myself included. This pandemic has shifted our lives completely. I haven’t seen my friends in a year. I haven’t met any of the people I’ve worked with in the past year. And the only people I’ve spent time with are those living in my house. For months we’ve been looking forward to a new year and now that it’s arrived, not much has changed, if anything we’re more isolated as we try to keep safe during the second wave.

While we’re living in these unprecedented times, it’s now more important than ever to take care of ourselves, nurture ourselves, understand our needs and fulfil. In our latest newsletter we challenged our readers to write 100 things about themselves. Who are you? What do you do? what do you like about you? What have you achieved? I did the exercise a few years ago, now that I’m in a different frame of mind I found this exercise much harder. This led me to Sam’s keynote address which she did at Agile Prague a few years ago – Being Curious About You. It’s a really worth watching. Sam reminds us to live the life we actually want and be true ourselves.
