The benefits of working remotely are pretty easy to grasp. Being able to work from home, not having to commute, not having to sell your house and move cross country to start a new job, being able to pay your bills while sitting in a cafe in Paris or on a beach in Thailand.
That’s the upside. The downside is that people have to be managed remotely. Which is not only a skill in itself, it requires the kind of worker who is good at it, who is good at self-management.
You can refer to the drawing above to see what that entails 🙂
With the big cities becoming increasingly unaffordable and unlivable, it’s more common that people are living in smaller and less densely populated cities. The need to set up remote-friendly situations will do nothing but increase over the next few years. It’s an exciting time.
