Week 23 – 2021 here I come

Week 23 – goodbye 2020, hello 2021 … I guess. While covid-19 rampages through the rest of the world, we sit here on our island and are complaining about a cold and wet summer … it feels – not so much wrong, but strange; like drifting further and further away from everything else.

The halfway point of my one-year sabbatical is coming closer, and there is no denying that at the end of 2020 ‘things’ started to slip through my fingers – so new year, new – or a timely adjusted – plan.

What will be different: I decided to revert to a Monday to Sunday schedule on my sprint planWednesday did work to a point, but Wednesdays turned into Thursdays, Thursdays turned Fridays, etc. So, new plan – Monday and Sunday stand-ups (with myself as the only participant :P) and Sunday blog posts.

So stay, tuned …
