Thanks to Naadiah Mazlani, I got introduced to the word “workcation.” Now that I have declared I am on workcation, my mindset is different. I don’t have that nagging question, “Why are you on Zoom working? You’re supposed to be resting!”
I am in Penang these couple of weeks. This workcation finds me working during the scheduled times while being away from my home office in Kuala Lumpur, this week at my son’s apartment and next week hopefully at a beach resort. The vacation part has the main purpose being the welcoming of my new grandchild. Yay, baby girl Hessa Hadi has arrived in this world! The work part are mainly the virtual coaching sessions and virtual events I am conducting. Work gets done while I can enjoy playing with grandchildren and time-lapse videoing clouds and beach sunsets.
