The World is a Giant Puzzle
Learnings from Wayne Gretzky, Remote Work, and the value of designing your own everyday schedule
We need complexity to simplify and what’s more complex than today’s modern world. It’s a formidable puzzle, pieces thrown around in the most unlikely places, hidden in dark spaces and plain sight.
Remote and hybrid work is here to stay, I read in an article via Artifact. People don’t want to return to the factory floor when they can work from anywhere, being taught how to by an unlikely teacher, the great pandemic (but really by themselves).
This insight, if you really want to call it an insight, is somewhat laughable for someone that began to explore remote work in the early nineties. What took you guys so long?, I’m thinking. It’s not rocket science.
So let’s spend some time thinking about what’s next and the impact of technology on work and life. Human beings have always developed new tools to survive and thrive better, to push the envelope of thinking and making, to conquer and rule.
Digital technologies have made everything accessible to everyone from anywhere. In a few years the playing field has been leveraged, from originally only being afforded to kings and queens, then to their followers the aristocracy, and later to every man.
