I just finished “Remote” book. Its philosophic book, easy to read, well written. I enjoyed it! and here are some points I liked:
Meaningful work, creative work, thoughtful work, important work-this type of efforts takes stretches of uninterrupted time to get into the zone. But the modern office such long stretches just can’t be found. Instead, its just one interruption after another.
The new luxury is the luxury of freedom and time. Once you’ve had a taste of that life, no corner office or fancy chef will be able to drag you back.
“Good day’s work.” Look at your progress toward the end of the day and ask yourself:” Have I done a good day’s work?”
Abundance and value are often opposites.
Equal pay for equal work.
Using a completely different device-say, a tablet instead of a laptop brings a healthy change of scenery.
The only reliable way to muster motivation is by encouraging people to work on the stuff that they like and care about, with people they like and care about. There is no shortcuts.
In thirty year’s time, as technology moves forward even further, people are going to look back and wonder why offices ever existed. – Richard Branson
