Having done some professional writing / blogging / research in our individual capacities, we as authors (http://prismphilosophy.com/our-team/) thought we could anticipate what it took to structure, plan, and align our thoughts in the form of a sequential array of topics. However, what we could not anticipate was the challenge the Covid-19 lockdown would throw onto us. The announcement of ‘staying-in’, ‘no movement’, coming to terms with the hard-hitting reality that while we were at a stage requiring working together uninterrupted for hours & days, we could not even for now, possibly meet. But as Michael Jordan said – “If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
What seemed an obstacle, however, reshaped into resolve as we took on the Herculean task of a true ‘work from home’ on our book, working in pace, while at our own place with series of calls, zoom calls, google meets & skype sessions, spaced in-between by running tasks around the house devoid of any help. The true picture of the work-life balance emerging as we juggled to and fro from ‘Kitchen to Laptop’ & from things around the house to chapters around the book.
Multiple mornings of, ‘not possible’ saw by the end of the day, ‘Yes! we can’, and emerged, ‘The Fundamentals of Research’ as you see it today. ( the article is an excerpt from Book)
