Week has passed by, really quickly, to be honest.
I have not had time to:
- watch Netflix
- listen to audio books
- clean the carage
…or for any other thing that I thought I would be doing. Work days have been really intensive. Today I was in front of my laptop basically all day from 8.30 until 23.00. This is a funny situation, because finally my family sees what I do for living. Their perception:
”You keep on speaking on the phone and telling the same thing to everybody.”
Yes, my daughters perception is pretty right. Management is communication and it is repeating the same thing over and over again. As you get bored to the topic, then you might have a chance that others heard you.
Our work with my management team is true crisis management at the moment. Market around us changes everyday. Today we got a new law, borders will be closed, events or gatherings for more than 10 people are not allowed and more restrictions will come. Year ago we were able to predict pretty well 6-12 months ahead. Now 12 hours seems optimistic. This is crazy.
Highlight of the day was the food delivery. Now we have some good stuff for days to come. We have been eating very well during the quarantine, thanks to my 14-year old daughter, who is a true Junior Chef. I’ll post some pictures of her cooking at the end of this post. She’s great!
Today I gave only one interview, but it was a half an hour talk to a TV Show called Elixir. Should be coming out some day soon. I just came from the sauna and then the interview started on Facetime. I was red and sweating. A true corona patient.
We also got clarification for the duration of the quarantine: it’s full 14 days. Well, that’s fine, since now we have some great ingredients for cooking and kids will start school (online) also tomorrow. That’ll bring some rhythm for their days as well.
Health? Today I had some cough, but my kids said it’s because I talk 10 hours a day… Otherwise we are fine.
I had some chat about the situation ”out there” in local restaurant business and it is not looking good. It’s a full stop to many businesses right now. I promise, as soon as I am out, I’ll start to organize #coronasurvivor dinners in the local restaurants! Can’t wait to start!
Stay strong! Take care and #FightBack – as my friend Pekka Hyysalo would say…
