Yes, tired of having a life, a health and plenty of free time to develop myself, besides defining my existence as billable hours.

I'm remote for the next year and love it and hate it. But I'm not wearing pants right now so there's that.

I worked for a firm that had a wfh culture and hated it in the end. Less productivity, less inclusiveness, no real team bonding, and you really lose out on the dynamics of meeting and brainstorming in the same room as people

Been working from home for a few months. Not going to lie it is getting hard to stay focused. I have travel upcoming next weeks weeks and looking forward to it. Honestly I wouldn't mind travel 1-2 weeks a month. Would be a perfect mix.

D1 I do enjoy some of the benefits but D2 you hit a lot of my pain points. I've been working remote since when I started with the firm in January. I really miss working with people face to face and developing a bond with my team.

I have been working from home for 7 months and desperately miss travelling. I never wanted a remote project to begin with but got stuck doing it. No end in sight and I'm looking at other firms because I can't get out

I was, until I started traveling full time again.

like

As much as I enjoy being able to wfh, I completely agree with D2. My team doesn't travel much and for those who are remote and in the city, they don't come into the office. So we started doing random team lunches in the middle of the week to try to get people to come in

Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
