Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.

Replace presence-based work with performance-based freedom

  • Practice environment-free productivity. Attempt to work for two hours in a cafe before proposing a remote trial.
  • Quantify current productivity. Document your work efforts.
  • Demonstrate remote work productivity. Rack up some proof that you can kick ass without constant supervision.
  • Practice the art of getting past “no”. “What would I need to do to .... (desired goal)?”
  • Put your employer on remote training wheels. Propose Monday or Friday at home.
  • Ask for more. Extend each successful trial period until you reach full-time or your desired level of mobility.

It means applying timelines to what most would consider dreams:

  • Create systems that limit your availability and deflect inappropriate interruptions. For example, replacing a meeting with a brief email.
  • Batch activities to limit costs and to create more time.
  • Set autonomous rules

Most information is time-consuming and unnecessary. You should be critical with what you look at, read, or watch daily.

What you do is far more important than how you do it. Efficiency is important, but it’s redundant unless it’s being applied to the right things.

99% of the people in the world are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things so they aim for the mediocre. Competition is strong for realistic goals.
