I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?

I think it depends on a lot of factors. How social the office is, your reputation prior to Covid, etc. My office isn’t social at all so I don’t really see a difference between three and five days a week, people don’t even know I’m there when I am.

The commute is the negative for me. About 1:15 so 2 and a half total is a lot of time to waste. But I have been going in more frequently and sure it is nice to see people.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
