The Art of Working Remotely: How to Thrive in a Distributed Workplace

People aren't typically taught how to thrive in a distributed workplace. Sure, they formally study to learn a specific occupation: design, marketing, sales, development, finance, law, or education. But can they perform that occupation at a high level when they're not physically with other people? Remote workers have to learn on their own. If you work from home, a coworking

Quick and easy reading book that shares good practices that help working remotely be a good experience.
Some recommendations are; creating an adequate workspace, having structure and work habits that requires a personal effort to determine which system works best for each one.
Good Reading.

Blending life-lived, workplace storytelling with life-long remote working tips, Scott take the reader on several journeys that showcases the value he's found in everything and everywhere he's worked and how you can benefit from those experiences too.

Scott Dawson joined my cross country team several years ago. In training runs and at races, he told me about his various projects: drawing every day for a year, taking the lead in a local play, creating a photo book with hundreds of images for his daughter’s graduation. I thought, “How does he possibly find the time?!?” After reading “The Art of Working Remotely,” I know the answer. Scott lives more intentionally than anyone I’ve ever met, and the keen advice he dispenses with wit and anecdote i ...more

My husband wrote this book so I got an advance copy. I have lived the journey he writes about with him and I found it really readable and interesting. He does a lovely job of interweaving his personal experiences with take aways for you. I am a teacher and I found a lot of things really useful to my job - in many ways teachers are remote workers. We have teams but we don't often have the opportunity to intersect with our coworkers. His advice for managing, emailing and more is really helpful. I ...more

Could use some editing, but the ideas are sound and the author is likable.

At times, it could use a good editor, and I would also recommend some different formatting (I’m reading the Kindle version) because the repeat lessons at the end of its chapter do not stand out, and they should. These are things that could easily be improved about the book itself.
In terms of ideas, I enjoyed it. I think the author and I are probably a lot alike. I could relate to a lot of his career experiences, and althou

Easy read about life of one remote worker

It's an easy read about a long time remote worker life.
I gave only 3 stars because the advise is more like "there is no one size fits all; google yourself". It does cover most of the topics to think about of one thinks about starting remote work career. But it doesn't have the answers.

Zoomed-out? Well, zoom in to The Art of Working Remotely. Scott imparts over 20 years of wisdom and entertaining tales about his journey in navigating a career of being entirely remote. This is a must-read given today’s pandemic environment and offers possibilities for employees and employers as they plan for a “new normal” workplace.
