Managers… I understand the temptation to want to track your employees’ every moment while they’re newly WFH, but I implore you to trust them to do the right thing rather than assume they’re taking advantage of the situation. Don’t look over their digital shoulder.

Work From Home is crucial step to take for all companies that are able. But let's not pretend that anyone can put in 100% during these times. If you expect everyone to still hit every deadline, nail every commitment, you're delusional, and you need to stop.

I spoke to a tech company with offices in New York & San Francisco who recently opened an office in Montana. A handful of senior executives voluntarily moved to Montana when they heard about the new location. They wanted a better quality of life. This will happen more often.

Everybody's talking about remote work. Communicate in long-form: Most companies do too much messaging and not enough long-form writing. Communicate less often, but with much more rigor.

It's weird how everyone I work with, including lawyers, bankers, etc seems just as productive...if not more. Remote work = how to take an 8 hour day and achieve it in 4-5 hours, with time left over to play with your kids and cook dinner.

There’s a great deal of discussion as of late about “remote” being the future of work. Remote is the future of everything. Education. Fitness. Experiences. Medicine. Relationships. Community. The technology is finally cohesive enough—VR will simply accelerate this trend.

The future of work is... - Hiring the best person for the job, not the person who lives in your city. - Talent arbitrage, as many candidates who have 'done it' at previous companies now want to live outside SF/NYC/LA/SEA/BOS. - A financially sustainable way to build a startup.

Online education is a rocket ship. Some second-order effects: 1) Somebody will build a billion-dollar homeschooling business. 2) Teachers will look more and more like entrepreneurs. 3) Online education and remote work will mirror each other and accelerate both trends at once.

Skeptics of remote work sound like skeptics of music streaming in the early 2000’s: “Can’t replace in-person collaboration around a white board” = “Can’t replace the experience of walking around the record store choosing the perfect album”

Why writing is an essential skill: 1) Remote work will shift communication from voice to text. 2) Almost every successful person spends a lot of time writing. 3) Leverage: Anybody can publish ideas, and they can now spread to every corner of the globe. We are all writers now.

All work is remote, it’s just a question of how remote. All communication is asynchronous, it’s just a question of how delayed. All companies raise money, it’s just a question of who they raise money from: owners, investors, or customers.

The physical location of where you start your business doesn’t matter anymore. Not because of remote work. Because of the infinite access to information and people that the Internet has unlocked. This is why single person sustainable companies can exist today. The Internet.

There's a lot of focus on productivity when it comes to remote work, and yes, that's a key factor, but it's not close to the most important one. HUMAN FLOURISHING is far more crucial! Productivity plays into that in the form of accomplishments, but so does a location of love.

What’s worse is when someone can’t leave a city because their job locks them down. They want to exchange something broken for something that works for them, but the “terms of service” at work don’t allow it. That’s one reason why remote work is so attractive.

I’ve always wanted someone to build a way for everyone to be a headhunter in their free time. Every major tech company has referral bonuses for their employees. Make this bonus available for anyone who sends a candidate & build a global + distributed recruiting team.
