Talking Remote Work on the Hanselman Podcast
I had the immense pleasure of speaking with Scott Hanselman on the topic of being a remote employee in a technological function. Scott's being doing this forever, and I've been doing it for a couple of years now, so it was a great exchange of ideas and experiences of what has worked and not worked for us as professional WFHers.
We had a nice, long form discussion on some of the items I mentioned in my earlier blog post on the topic of working remotely: as engineers, and people managers in a technical function and as folks who have personal lives that they have to integrate with their work, being that their entire professional life is embeded in a place that's at the core of their personal lives.
Scott shares a few of this hard-earned tips for making this work and also shares a particular viewpoint on not allowing ourselves to live our lives by default.
