I'm no stranger to feeling trapped in life.
I have trained with some of the best coaches in the world throughout my 20 year sports career and again at the 2008 Olympics.
If 2020 has taught us something, even the best of plans can go wrong.
Whether it's a global pandemic, climate change or the rise of automation, the pace of change in our world is accelerating rapidly.
As a child, my father sometimes took me fishing in his little rusty tin boat. Sometimes, in the middle of the lake, he would put duct tape over a leak to keep the water in check until we were back on land. He used to say that boats don't sink out of the water around them.
More Americans than ever before are working from home. Originally a temporary solution to the pandemic, many companies are now looking for more permanent work-from-home facilities with long-term plans where employees only visit the office once or twice a week.
Unprecedented times. Unsafe times.
You could even say that with a raging pandemic, these are scary times.
But if you've spent that time working from home, you probably wouldn't say you missed your commute.
