re: 10 things I've learned from working remotely VIEW POST


Great stuff already! I'd like to add: video conferences are your friend!

  • Have buffers between meetings
    If you were on-site, you'd need to walk to a meeting. Keep ~5 minutes if you're in back to back meetings to remind you to walk

  • Have water cooler video slots
    I had an "open" video conference time where I posted a video conference link when I had 15-30 minutes at a given time and posted the link in random or other Slack channels. This helps to just chat with others.

  • Have art or something that can spark conversation within eyeshot of your video
    It helps break the ice and gives people a little of your "flair" similar to what you'd have at your desk


I love the time slot suggestion! Brilliant!
