The daily commute is killing you and you know it!
Let’s never go to the office again has been my mantra for the last two years. Relieving myself of over 150 staff members and six physical offices was the most crucial step in empowering myself and embracing life. Article by Julien Uhlig
The time is now to evolve remotely, growing from a gig-based economy like Fiverr, a service I use frequently, to executive services. The next step is executive hiring. Talking to a new service from a company Torre Inc. indeed shows the way forward. The app integrates personality tests, AI, and recommendation platforms into a hiring tool for the next generation remote executives. Simultaneously, the platform performs beautifully and intuitively and gives you a sense of personal interaction.
If your staff is working from home, why should executives waste money, time, and life quality to attend the office? Learn, evolve, and become an excellent online communicator and get more stuff done in less time. Is it going to be easy? I don’t think so. We need to learn, adapt, and build a training system that prepares us for the remote working.
There is a vast difference between success and happiness
Like many disruptions, my lifestyle change did not come voluntarily; a major investor struggle left me and my small core staff stranded in Bali while the small empire I had built over the previous decade went up in flames.
New management was going to take the company, which just closed its first 20 Mil. institutional project financing round, to the next level. While I agreed that it was time for new management, and over two years, I had groomed a super-smart CFO from Los Angeles to take that place, my founding partner sincerely believed that he could do it better.
Three months later, the company was gone and 250 Mil. Dollars in project value went up in smoke. Sometimes “I told you so” does not make it any better. For me, it was an opportunity to rethink all business decisions and how to structure the limited time I have to live on this planet. I did not want the pressure, the sleepless nights, the tiredness, and the deep feeling of dissatisfaction anymore.
There is a vast difference between success and happiness, and there was never a time I felt the discrepancy more.
Separating your time into the office and home is a massive waste of resources!
Separating your time into the office and home, especially in the major metropolitan areas, are a massive waste of resources, time, and concentration. It is even worse; the second life breaks our society; it separates families while creating alternate universes. While the work ethic displayed in US television series of 100% commitment to work makes for good entertainment, it leaves zero room for your personal needs. Co-Working from Bali we can integrate meeting my baby and wife in the middle of the day since everyone is close. No need to get into the car just for a coffee.
As an Executive, I would support isolating staff from family and friends to get the best out of them, creating a cult-like work atmosphere. That is the underlying concept of our modern work ethic; being in a different phase of my life, I can no longer support that. We need to change!
The main reason not doing remote working, I hear, is the social fabric—the coffee talks. I get it. You are lonely and have no life; that is the direct result of the system you are working in. How about making friends where you live? Just go to a co-working space and coffee chat there. You might learn something from chatting with people who work on something else; you might find new customers, partners, lovers, it’s a great life out there.
Remote working can strengthen our bonds
Not working from a corporate office does not necessarily mean work from home. The benefit of having people working with people in the same neighborhood is that you can make friends and meet after work. See, remote working is strengthening our local bonds, which are so crucial for a healthy social life.
Unfortunately, there are so many restrictions and massive risks in the US in socializing with co-workers. Maybe in a world where you are only one non appreciated compliment away from a sexual harassment lawsuit, we should further limit social interactions between the same company employees. There are many reasons to limit exchanges to recorded zoom calls.
I found the quality of life, work fulfillment, and a fraction of the cost with Bali’s prices, but there are many places like this in the world. The future will be remote, so maybe it’s time to get out of the metropolitan areas now, don’t wait for office rental valuations to deflate from record levels. There is a beautiful life out there. Give it a try some time.
