Remote Work in 2021
Early last year, before the pandemic shut the world down, I wrote about the coronavirus and remote work. Over the course of the year, many workplaces were forced to adapt to remote operations. I suggested at the end of the piece that remote work may be only temporary, but more than a year later, it’s clearly here to stay.
While I didn’t like remote work at first, I’ve gotten use to it. I love the flexibility of being able to work from anywhere —— I can live in any city or even work in different places for short stints. I love being able to get work done when I want to. I love taking power naps during the day, something I wasn’t able to do in person.
Remote work is now the new normal. Especially in the software industry, most companies are either fully remote or hybrid.
