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 space, or coffee shop, this book is for you. The author's anecdotes about his 21-year remote work journey will inform and entertain you. Discover how to set up a quality workspace. Learn the behaviors and practices that contribute to remote worker success. You, too, can thrive in a distributed workplace.

Management is like conducting an orchestra. As the conductor, you should know the music and the players inside and out. You should be able to point to a section (oboes, trumpets, percussion) and know what they’re supposed to be doing. However, when a composition could be better, conductors don't abandon their perch. You don't see them rush into a section and start playing along (or worse, replacing a musician). Don’t micromanage. Trust your team to do the right thing and give them the tools to do it. Trust, but verify. Yes, it’s your responsibility to know what’s going on. It's not your responsibility to micromanage, taking creative license and ownership away. Lastly, don’t have meetings because you think you should. Meetings are for collaboration, not “telling people things.” Continuing the orchestra analogy, you don’t assemble the orchestra and not have them play. If you’re telling them something, send them an email instead

when faced with a difficult problem, compartmentalize it and leave it for a bit. Go for a walk or a run, or work on something different. It’ll still be there when you come back and the answer may come to you in the meantime.
