Remote working? Time to sharpen your intuition

Remote working? Time to sharpen your intuition In the days of old, when you went for a business meeting, you’d meet prospective suppliers face to face. They’d give you a spiel about why it’s so great to work with them, you’d make small talk, laugh over coffee, and more often than not, you’d go away with some sort of verbal agreement to get the ball…

【關於遠距工作的未來想像】The imagination of Remote working

【關於遠距工作的未來想像】The imagination of Remote working 我想試著住在森林裡,寫作 “An overgrown path through a coniferous forest” by Kirill Nechmonya on Unsplash 昨天去參與SOS Reader的手寫字寫作,看到了好愛的作家,看到了手寫字的傳達與設計技術,遙遠的記憶彷若從被遺忘的遠古喚起。 我羨慕他們可以自己創作為傲且過活的日子。 在以往被強求遵從、勉強自己符合社會、塞進工作體制、出賣生命時間只求等待被動發薪的我,是無法想像的未來。 以前求學時代,就以一手好字為傲。(但曾經花了太多時間在台上講究板書的雕寫,被老師”請”下台) 長大之後的我,風格逐漸在轉換,從工整精細轉變為浪蕩不羈,從只懂遵守規矩的乖寶變成〝為什麼要這麼做?〞的發問孩。 一個女漢子的內在活脫脫地準備蹦發出來, 一個太常想問為什麼的人注定在剛開始時會被認為是多嘴的 。 (你為什麼不能好好遵守?你為什麼要這麼不聽話?你為什麼這麼不能像女孩子一樣乖乖的?) 求學時期有一段時間超愛0.38三菱中性筆,還曾因為只寫過一次不小心摔斷水而痛哭懊悔。(不便宜啊啊啊啊) 長大才知道,原來筆尖前頭的小珠珠是精細工藝的一部分啊!也就是摔斷水之後寫不出來的最大原因 原來從小時候就開始知道,適合自己的工具,那種書寫起來、流水剛好的流暢感原來對自己而言,很重要! 原來小時候的自己,無意之間對於書寫,身體的感覺是很講究且要求的,但是時常會被大人以不了解的姿態所干擾(小孩子憑什麼要用這麼貴的筆啊?不能隨便用10塊以下的筆寫就好了嗎?你們太好命了) 因為從小經濟限制在大人底下的小孩我,只好默默地看著同學的筆吞口水,把點心的錢省了好幾十次才終於買得起筆。 至於為何會想要在森林裡從事寫作? 不只是單純為了逃避喧囂的環境,更多的其實是在追尋,有一部分的我受了阿納斯塔夏的影響。 阿納絲塔夏俄羅斯知名系列書,包含了所有人類一生中最重要的話題!人與自然的連結、撫養小孩、自然農耕、人類潛能發展、愛、身心靈療癒、健康飲食、超自然能力、打造生態家園、祖宗智慧、宇宙/人類歷史、人類未來等等。www.cedarray.com 起初的構想是嘗試藉由網路的科技力量養活自己,如此一來就不必勉強自己的身體與時間去套用在公司規範上來,也可以脫離社會觀感、長輩壓力與不符合自己價值觀的社會期待(例如必須要買車、買房來彰顯自己等等) 但慢慢地,我發現自己的思想藉由網路來傳遞、互動與迴響,無意之中竟得到很多生命的啟發。 也慢慢地察覺自己在森林裡才能感覺到平靜的環繞,即使自己在裡面迷路了也不太驚慌 曾經模仿哈比人脫鞋赤足在森林裡遊蕩亂走,過往在城市裡路名記憶方向對我來說不太管用,但是在森林裡我可以記得住路。 這是一種很奇妙的感覺。 但是也是在結束紐澳遠遊、回到城市勉強自己適應一年以後,才逐漸了解到自己原來已不再慣於遵循都市人立下的規範。 有一部分的自己已經轉變了。 也因此自己逐漸同理,怎麼會有女生想要搬去撒哈拉沙漠居住咧? 沒別的原因,因為想啊! 只是要建構實際生存的種種細節,要靠自己的頭腦去找到經營方法 (例如遠距工作,不再追求身體待在辦公室也能解決問題) 所以選擇遠距工作對我而言, 可以說是一種肉體、工作時間、生活方式的解放選擇。 因為我的肉體、心靈都已經告訴我:我不適合待在都市裡了。也不適合追尋單純販賣生命時間換取報酬的工作型態了。 更何況,隨著網路的越來越發達,這應該是一件逐漸變得輕鬆簡單的事。 就看你如何讓自己的生活隨著自己想要的生活型態去定義與建構了。 我喜歡的遠距工作/理想生活設計網站: 佐依|理想生活設計 – Your life, your choice.你對在家工作、一邊工作一邊旅行這樣的生活型態感興趣嗎? 今天這集邀請到的來賓Andrew Yeh,專門在做口碑行銷顧問、廣告投放和經紀業配,同時正在協助經營一個推廣遠距工作文化的社團。…zoeyk.co Source: Medium:Remote Working 【關於遠距工作的未來想像】The imagination of…

在家工作2年,遠端工作最真實的6個優缺點

在家工作2年,遠端工作最真實的6個優缺點 「不想上班!不想去辦公室!好想在家工作啦!」你的腦中常常浮現這幾句話嗎? 居家辦公幾年前開始在歐美盛行,一方面是為了給予行動不便者,及要在家照顧北鼻的新手媽媽們一些工作的機會,但後來隨著數位化的時代來臨,許多公司也開始提倡「遠距工作」,靠著雲端作業系統完成90%甚至100%的工作,這當然也給了工作者更多兼顧私生活的空間。 自2016年,我開始嘗試遠端工作的型態,一週會在家工作兩、三天,而從2017年的十月開始,我也正式邁入完全遠端的行列,工作時就只有我與我的電腦(還有充電器),而我也從很興奮能夠在家工作,到現在漸漸習慣、然後開始發現它的好與壞,如果你對這種Lifestyle有憧憬,卻又不知道這樣的工作模式到底適不適合自己?今天要分享的內容也許能為你解惑唷! 遠端工作的優點: 1.地點的自由性 Yap,這是大家最嚮往的,一邊旅行一邊工作,聽起來好棒棒。(是真的滿棒的) 只要有電有網路,你都可以工作,你可以在背包客棧、在飛機上、在海邊、在被窩、在任何你想要工作的地方工作! 2.省時又省錢 省掉通勤的時間、省掉通勤的錢、省下午餐晚餐外食時間和金錢、省下被同事慫恿而加入團購的錢、省下不小心和同事聊天聊到忘我的時間⋯⋯好多好多。 以前我在台灣工作時,因為家住得比較遠,通勤都要花上一個半小時,一天交通費來回快要100元!尤其天氣不好時都會很無奈,要是今天不用到辦公室該有多好啊~ 3.工作速度加倍 咦?遠端工作的效率真的會比較好嗎?其實這樣看個人,有的人很懶散,很容易分心,所以一不小心就會拖延工作,但是如果!你是一個很懂得時間管理的人,遠端工作確實能讓你更有效率。 最大的原因就是:及早完成自己的工作,就可以趕快“下班”!你不用等到六點才能打卡走人,只要工作完成,時間都是你的了! (延伸閱讀:6小時就能完成的工作,為何要坐在辦公室8小時? — — 從辦公室文化談遠距工作的好處) <iframe src=”https://giphy.com/embed/mCRJDo24UvJMA” width=”480″ height=”348″ frameBorder=”0″ class=”giphy-embed” allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href=”https://giphy.com/gifs/dog-shiba-inu-typing-mCRJDo24UvJMA“>via GIPHY</a></p> 4.更專注 少了辦公室的噪音、同事走來走去、他人大聲談話或做事被打斷的等等干擾,你能更專注一次完成一項任務,一心多用不只會降低專注力和效率,研究也顯示,只要一件正在進行的事情被打斷,效率就會減少20%呀! 5.面對上司與同儕的壓力降低 這應該是大家也都很嚮往的吧?不用真的看到老闆的臉色、不用面對不喜歡的同事,少了辦公室帶來的壓力,心情自然會好很多。 6.更有彈性兼顧私生活的品質 這一點雖然要看不同產業與不同公司的工作量,但是比起8+小時被綁在辦公室的上班族,遠距工作者確實有更多的彈性能夠兼顧私生活,如果工作屬性是責任制或任務制,也比較能夠自由拆解工作時程,如早上8點到中午12點,晚上5點到9點⋯⋯等。 遠距工作的缺點: 1.需要很自律與強大的時間管理技能 剛開始踏入遠距工作圈,我也是個超容易分心且很不會管理時間的人,要達到「優點3」所描述的效率,不只要有強大的自律能力,也很需要進入“勿擾模式”,花一點時間觀察,你的時間都去哪了? 推薦做法:每天在開始工作前,寫下To-Do list,並且標註一定要完成的三件事,在需要時把手機關靜音,用鬧鐘設定“可休息的時間”,等到鬧鐘響了再去休息(建議可使用每工作25分鐘、休息5分鐘的番茄法),另外,寫下下班後想做的事,也可以使你更認真地用力完成今日工作! 2.沒有充電的地方或網路就會GG 如果你剛好是正在旅行的遠端工作者,應該懂這樣的困境⋯⋯到了一間咖啡廳永遠都會先看有沒有插座?如果遇到網路很差的環境,很多事都會無法完成,效率也會跟著降低。不過如果是在家工作,這樣的問題能少很多。因此,雖然很夢幻,但海邊當然也不是非常理想的工作地點(電腦常常會太燙突然跑很慢啊啊啊) 3. 溝通的即時性 常常有問題敲同事,卻等好久都沒人回?(尤其是那種沒得到回覆,就無法繼續進行的工作啊!)遠端工作的弊端之一,就是沒有那麼即時,尤其如果你配合的是外商公司,更有可能有時差的問題。最慘的就是,你剛好沒看到老闆的訊息,老闆以為你偷懶就 7PuPu? 這樣的問題可能會造成你必須要經常待命,而我也因為與同事有時差的關係,常常會在晚上九點、十點(台灣早上)的時候開會,如果你很介意的話,這一點就必須要考量一下。 4.孤單寂寞覺得冷 就是很常會感到寂寞啊,身邊沒同伴,也沒有可以討論聊天的對象,有時候甚至會一整天都沒聽到任何同事的聲音,這不僅會缺少腦力激盪的對象,有時也會降低工作的士氣。 5.聽到有人敲你時,依舊剉咧等 這個情況就像是在辦公室時,老闆突然對你說:「XXX,等等到會議室找我」一樣,就算是遠端工作者,也會有一樣的問題啦~ 所以不要覺得不用看到老闆的人,就不會面對這樣的問題,尤其是開啟訊息通知的那個瞬間,看到了3個未讀,開頭是:「你現在忙嗎?」之類的句子,就會有超多內心戲,擔心著對方要和你說什麼?! 訊息是個無法感受到「語氣」的工具,也許對方只是要跟你說:「你上次做的那個簡報很不錯~」你還是會胡思亂想啊!!(還是只有我常這樣?) 6.家人以為你有空做家事 「姐姐你今天在家喔?下午去幫我跑郵局一趟好不好?」、「郵差來了記得要下樓簽收欸!」、「你今天不去辦公室?那衣服可以洗一洗嗎?」、「你在家的話能不能幫我去菜市場買青菜?」 OMG…在家工作也是在工作啊!!你會叫我在上班的時候幫你洗衣服嗎???(崩潰)家人真的是很不懂餒?怒分享: https://vimeo.com/225411100 we have the right to work at home in peace without interruptions!!!…
