I am so lucky to be working in a job with flexibility, and have an amazing team that always has my back.

I recently tore my ACL (Anterior cruciate ligament) and have had to stay off my feet for the last week. I am in the very convenient position where I can work from my laptop at home, and use tools like Skype to keep up with any meetings and communication, Dropbox to send and receive the required video to get my work done, and Asana to keep an eye over all developments!

Today's technology lends itself to situations like my current one, so it's just up to me to keep the right attitude and make use of it!

What also helps situations like this is having a great team who have my back. I don't mean to brag but I believe we have the best video team going around, we are always looking out for each other and supporting each other, and picking up the slack when someone has to drop off. We set such high standards for ourselves and we feed off of each other's motivation and successes, so when somebody is down, everyone else somehow finds another level to step up to and we are able to maintain our high level of quality and progress. It's a very comforting thing to know that you have a solid net waiting there of ever you fall.

You always hear people talk about how in war, it is so crucial to know the person next to you has your back, that they know what they are doing and have the skills to execute their task, and most importantly that they have the heart and loyalty to stick in there when the going gets tough. So when you get shot (or tear an ACL) your brothers and sisters will throw your arm over their shoulder and carry you forward with them, the least I can do is keep shooting with my other arm.
