Today we were three people in the office! Spread out, each one in their own corner, so it almost felt like I was still there alone – especially since no one from my team was there.

It’s not a bad way to get back to work. Week 1, get used to being in an office. Week 2, get used to other people in the office. Week 3, get used to office noise.

This reminds me of a humorous document, making its rounds by email many years ago I think, with tongue-in-cheek instructions for how to ease your employees back to work after a vacation. It was roughly in the same vein. Day 1, let the employee spend some time sitting behind a desk, and so on. I couldn’t find it on the internet though.
