Tell us who you are and what you do.
I’ve retired from work but not from life. I live in the UK. I have lots to do at the moment - getting married and finding a new home for myself and my fiancée being just two.
What do you love about remote work? Hate?
I don’t work as a career or in employment, so in a way all that I do is remote work. I am dealing with the challenge of spending a lot of time with my fiancée, who lives a 2 hour car drive away from my own place, and that means being away from my home office for long periods. I love being with her but hate not having my iMac, scanner, filing cabinet and other office stuff with me.
How did you find Effective Remote Work?
I joined the Productivity Guild before it became ERW.
What’s one thing you’ve learned that has impacted you most?
I came across GTD while I was still in employment and that changed my life. The one thing I’d say I’ve learned generally in life is - don’t put up with things that are shabby, broken and don’t inspire you, whether it’s clothes or a productivity app. Invest in things that look good and work really well - you will feel great and the ease of use will give you a real boost!
