What has wfh reduced your life to? Malcolm Gladwell

“if you’re just sitting in your pajamas in your bedroom, is that the work life you want to live? Don't you want to feel part of something?”


Mixed feelings about the video but I'm glad I wfh because as rambunctious as my kids and dogs can be, these are memories I'd NEVER get to have if I was in an office trying to feel part of some fake office culture.

Gladwell could have said something along the lines of "I used to like working remote, but I've changed my mind. For X, Y and Z reasons I now prefer working in an office". Would have gained him a lot more respect that way instead of saying remote work isn't great. I am ok with people changing their minds on things, thats normal. But slamming the opposing side just make you look like a loser. Everyone works differently and we should respect that.
