Remote Work Should Be (Mostly) Asynchronous

“The pandemic accelerated many trends, from streaming, e-commerce, and food delivery platforms to the widespread adoption of remote work.
But instead of taking advantage of this opportunity to improve how we work, most organizations simply took their offices online, along with the bad habits that permeated them.
A move to a better way of working remotely is desperately needed.
If your digital transformation is going to be successful, you need to give your employees the right tools and systems to work in a digital, distributed, virtual environment.
However, digital tools are only as effective as how effectively you use them, and alignment between managers and employees on remote work best practices will be critical to the success of any digital transformation initiative.”

The importance of the social life in Remote Working

When I worked in an office environment, I could be passive about social interaction because it was an inherent part of my day.

In a remote world, you have to be intentional about in-person socialization.

One of the best things about working remotely is that it leaves me the social energy for the times I want.

Prioritize your social activities, because they are a form of self-care.

The future of work

The idea of working five days a week with two day weekends and a few weeks of annual holiday is just something people accept. For some reason, it is considered set in stone by most companies. There is no reason this can’t change. In fact, it would benefit everyone if it did.

As Larry (Page) said: “The idea that everyone needs to work frantically to meet people’s needs is just not true.”  We all need to work smarter, not longer.

Project Managers vs. Developers, how to Close the Gap

Very interesting post about a real hot topic, that could be so determinant about the quality of the service delivered.

It’s no secret that developers and project managers don’t always see eye-to-eye. In fact, many developers will tell you that their PM simply sucks.

TEDx Talks: The Remote Work Revolution

Another very interesting talk contributes to share this new methodology of living work, so improve the way we live our life and evolve in something better.

“The idea here is that rather then us designing our lives around work, we’re now designing work into our lives.”

“So it’s clear we need a new approach to work, our dependence on location is not necessarily the best way to think about work.
It works for a long time after the post-industrial period but now it’s time to re-think it as we kind of transition into a more digital and service-based economy.”
