When I read about remote work, I often see these kind of images
Also tried to google "remote work" and it's:
50% cocktails on a beach and
50% clean desk packed with Apple's products.
Nope, this is not a reality when working remotely. For a few, maybe. I mean, sun is too hard on your eyes and you won't see the screen. Also, not very productive to sip cocktails all day. And you need to charge your laptop, no? Where's the power socket?
In reality, people are working from home instead of a beach and the real challenge is to mute your call exactly at these times when your baby cries.
There are probably at least a few people working on a beach and drinking cocktails, but almost 2.5k remote workers responded to Buffer's State of Remote Work about their workplaces, and it came out as:
home – 84%
co-working spaces – 8%
️ cafes – 4%
🏛 libraries – 1%
other places, including RV campers and grandma's basement – 3%
