3 working days next week and then another 7 days off to proceed my summer holiday. We will have two sessions about story telling as preparation for our communication event early Oct-21 and do the next planning cycle for our agile transformation project. All necessary and interesting meetings that I did not want to miss. Normally I would say when you are on holiday, you are away from work and should be focusing to relax, but as the holiday planning and taking is still a lot impacted by the weekly changing COVID-19 situation, indicators and guidelines, a real preparation is difficult. So we will decide on short-notice, what to do and stay close to home 🤔.

“Whenever I'm asked what advice I have for young writers, I always say that the first thing is to read, and to read a lot. The second thing is to write. And the third thing, which I think is absolutely vital, is to tell stories and listen closely to the stories you're being told.” ― John Green, taken from 50 Best Quotes for Storytelling
