I’ll be honest. I am not really one for New Years' resolutions.

 

But what I have found myself doing in the new year is evaluating and working to change the way I go about my day-to-day habits. As 2022 began came to a close, I took a hard look at my ways of working and routine and didn’t really like what I saw. Getting stuck in hours of meetings in the spirit of FOMO, realizing I skipped lunch (and sometimes breakfast), or only walked a handful of steps in a day were all things I was noticing. This got me thinking about how I could improve or even enhance my hybrid work experience. Would I work better from a loft in Paris for a month (I actually did this, and the answer is no because all I wanted to do was eat and explore the city :p)? Do I get more done if I work on a strict routine or a loose one? How much Focus time should I be blocking each week? And most importantly, how can I feel more productive both personally and professionally each day?

 

This month, we’ve curated our collateral on how to drive more engaging and better work habits in the new year and how we see the world shifting in 2023 to address those questions. Whether it’s creating down time for yourself to focus on learning, creativity, or finding new ways to connect with your colleagues in a hybrid world—this rundown is for you.
