For lots of people navigating working from home for a bit, I know it’s tricky!

I don’t always follow my own advice, but here are a few practices I try to implement myself and with my wee team of remote workers to help us keep things rolling smoothly:
1) Do not, I repeat, do not work from bed. Not even to check emails on your phone in the morning (guilty). Keeping a separate work space helps to not only prevent the overwhelm of work bleeding into personal space, but also helps you get in the zone for doing productive mahi.
2) If you don’t have a separate space to work from, or need to work from bed for any reason, try to establish a separate ritual for getting into work mode - it might be only to work once you’ve had your morning coffee or brushed your teeth, and to put the laptop away at X time.

Let's talk about the F word.

The NDIS had a proposed Medicare levy increase, which the original proponents of the levy welcomed.

I understand that some dis org may not understand this issue. However, it is not the job of activists to spend time ploughing through reports.
2/ You need to read the Productivity Commission's Oct 17 report (screenshot above, blind folks, too long 2 describe pc.gov.au/inquiries/comp… ) And you also need to pay more attention. The way they are limiting & capping the scheme is well known and it is at the directive of govt
3/ This has been released, read, understood. And it DIRECTLY affects your membership, so you need to listen to those members (I know you do already, but we hear it every day on the ground.)I will reinforce some of the issues here which outline WHY you need to harmonise messages.
