It has been said that it takes 21 days to form a habit. What happens when it’s not 21 days or 21 weeks, it’s 21 pay periods! When I leave my office at lunch to grab a sandwich or salad and I see the same people walking around town in joggers because they have been working out of their house since March, I must wonder how difficult it is going to be for them when they must put their suit and tie back on for the first time. Will it even fit? There have been many changes to our lives since March, some are good, and many are bad. Will the wine and Netflix go from 7 nights to maybe 2? In our hospitals there have been many changes out of necessity with meetings and day to day responsibilities. Have we started the journey back with our at home working staff so to try and break some of the habits that we have developed since early March, if not, start with the Monday 8am meeting and ease into it.
