The genie is out the bottle

A lot of people have realized that they are just as effective or even more effective working remotely. Clocking in from 9 to 5 is something dating back to the industrial revolution and assembly lines. Those days are over for a large swath of the workforce.

Most of the voices calling for people to return to the office are commercial real estate developers, control freaks or people who are in denial.

Remote work doesn’t mean you don’t get on a plane or in the car for important in-person meetings and sales pitches. You still need to break bread with co-workers and customers. There’s going to be some gray space.

The genie is out the bottle. Companies that require mandatory work from the office will see very high employee attrition in the next year.

“Don’t worry, he doesn’t bite!”

The toughest competitors are the ones you don’t know about.

Amateurs bang their pots and pans on the street corners to get attention. They talk, pontificate and broadcast big moves. But beneath the bluster and chatter – nothing changes. They are like small dogs with loud bark.

Professionals don’t show their cards. You never see them coming. When they make a move, you don’t hear about it – you see the results. 

Malibu Rising

Malibu Rising from Taylor Jenkins Reid, the author who wrote the wonderful book, Daisy Jones and the six.

It’s a fun read with beautiful Malibu and LA as the stage. I recommend.

The word Malibu comes from the native Chumash and it means “noisy surf”. 😊

Early birds
