Hello, remote leader 👋
The Buzz: What CEOs Are Saying
CEOs worldwide, including Frontier Airlines' Barry Biffle, are raising alarms about perceived drops in productivity in our new remote work era. In a telling piece from Fortune, Biffle boldly claims that we've "gotten lazy in COVID."
The Reality: What The Data Shows
Despite the naysayers, there's research showing the potential of remote work. McKinsey's analysis reveals that about a third of all work can be efficiently done remotely.
Personal Reflection: My Remote Journey
I'll admit it: I've grown lazier since the pandemic 😅
I noticed a stark shift when I started my remote work adventure well before the pandemic. Before, an hour-long drive for a meeting was routine. Now, it feels daunting. The charm of the virtual world is undeniable, but I can't help but wonder: are we losing something vital?
The Transition Phase
We're in a significant transition. But should it spell lethargy? We are creatures of interaction and ambition. Remote work should fuel our dreams, not stifle them.
Our challenge is clear: Balancing the lure of convenience without sacrificing our passion and productivity. To borrow from Fortune, while the world might find a "happy medium," the natural balance is about zeal, spirit, and passion.
A Call to Introspection
Have you found your equilibrium in this shifting landscape? If not, how do you plan to find that balance?
That's all for this Saturday.
