This week, we did our part. We made a rule – if you live in Seattle, stay in Seattle, and if you live on the Eastside, stay in Bellevue. Now, I’m not known for being the most stress-free individual in our company, so I was, let’s be honest, quite uptight about this. What if someone needed me? What happens if there’s a crisis?
But on Friday of last week, something different happened. One of our T-Mobile teams needed to re-shoot some videos. There we were, staring at our calendars, at a loss – it wasn’t going to work. The talent had a wedding coming up, PTO was looming for the project manager, and Carmageddon meant that neither of them were going to be able to come to the Eastside – where T-Mobile shoots their videos – the whole week.
So we said – let’s do it in Seattle.
We saw examples like this all over the region this week. Everyone did their part. By adjusting how we worked as a city, we all got new experiences and saved a lot of time sitting in traffic. We were rescued from the daily wasting of gas and the environment, and allowed to focus on what’s most important to us.
This is one thing that I enjoy about working for our company, and in Seattle as a whole –we make the best of our hard situations. GoNetYourself has two studios – Seattle and Bellevue – so every day is a different day, depending on what needs to happen. And if there’s a big event, we adjust. But it was great to see the whole city adjust – we all came together to all do our part.
And plus, we did something great together.
