Working from Home
As I tweeted earlier this week, I’m still adjusting. We’re working in 2-3 hour blocks and taking turns on baby duty which makes any form of deep work tough to accomplish.
In some ways, I think we’re looking at a boom for remote work, but in others I wonder if some of us need or want the triggers that are associated with working in an office environment.
I suspect if you have no kids, or older kids, you can be productive as ever — maybe more so. But, if you’re in the camp of two working parents with a toddler, it’s really, really difficult to maintain a level of high performance for long periods of time.
Net, if you’re young with no kids, this pandemic is a huge opportunity for you to shine early in your career!
