In the latter part of 2019, I hit a serious roadblock. The company I was contracting for seemingly ran out of funds and waited until the end of October to tell me that I wouldn't be receiving a paycheck until sometime in early 2020. This came as an extreme shock to me as I'd been working with them since June and everything had seemed fine.
It's company policy to restart your computer before you leave work. Why? I imagine an effort to help protect client health records. At first, this annoyed me because I had to reopen my apps and my stories every day. That not only took time but precious brain power to remember what the heck I was doing. It's bad enough to pick up in the middle of a story the next day, but don't force me to start over before my first cup of coffee.
Usually, I'd start a quarterly review by doing a brief overview of my goals and then explain what I've done to move towards them. For the first time in the last several years, I don't have any goals for the year though I will before the end of the month. The last three months have been a blur.
