The Week Ahead 03
Well, thanks to the Coronavirus, March has pretty much been canceled.
With more people working from home, I hope there starts to be more serious conversations around work culture in the U.S. There are a lot of offices closing and many are working remotely, but many other Americans don't have that option. If anything, I just hope this brings to light some of the issues many people face in their jobs with their available sick time and PTO.
I know there are a lot of freelance photographers, journalists, and plenty of other workers right now are going to have a tough time this year because of all the canceled events and complications this virus has caused. Hoping this will all be past us sooner rather than later.
I finished the audio version of Endurance: Shackelton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing. It's a fantastic true story of an Antarctic expedition in 1914. It tells of the adversity and terrible situations these men faced when things went horribly wrong and how they were able to overcome it all. I found it ironic, but very fitting, the ship was in fact named "Endurance". Check it out if you can.
I'm going to spend some time this week to work on some personal projects and also run more consistently. On the contrary, the weather this week looks like it's going to be anything but consistent. This is a good reminder for myself to not limit my outdoor photography only when it's sunny, partly cloudy, or just during golden hour. Photography is like anything else, requiring practice and consistency to become great. Reminds me of the following quote:
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." -Will Durant
I'm sure we have a few more volatile weeks ahead of us, but personally, during this time I'm going to focus on what I can do, rather than the things I have no control over.
Here's a picture of my cat just because.
I hope you all have a good week. Thank you for reading and all your support!
