I spent the first few months of lockdown in a blur. Working with NHSX, on the national app launch, meant that I didn’t have a minute to think about what was going on outside my immediate focus. Then, a few months ago, I switched to a new job in the Data Standards Authority – so I’ve had all the excitement of getting up to speed on new projects.
And this week. Just… *bleugh*. I’ve hit the wall.
I seem to have spent the week drifting off in meetings, nodding, and wondering if I’m adding any value.
I’ve been sending emails to people who obviously don’t want to read them, but are far too polite to tell me to stop bothering them.
I was snippy with several people who didn’t deserve it (and one person who definitely did!)
I’m writing a very important document which is meant to be a couple of thousand words. It’s currently blank.
I should be attending a bunch of social events, but I’d rather just stare at my phone and eat copious amounts of vegan chocolate.
Basically, who the fuck stole my motivation?
