3 Key Elements For Work From Home To Be Productive, Joyful and Sane

2020 has been quite an exciting ride, hasn't it? In the last 10 weeks we saw more telecommuting or work from home arrangements than we have ever had before.

Suddenly work for home is possible. 

However, one of the things that we have noticed as we work with our clients as as they send their talent pool back home to work from home in a hurry, there were many, many things that we realised now that we need to go back and take a look at. 

One of the first things that we did know our clients did was they simply worked in double quick time to give access and equipments and sent the staff off to work from home.We know from our years of practice of advising organisations on flexibility on remote work and tele work that the most important thing, actually, besides the technology is the human interface, the human pieces.

Curiosity and Cultural Inclusion

Taking advantage of the season, I invited some of my clients to an annual celebration of the Lunar New Year and have them experience for themselves what it is about and up their appetite for curiosity. Here they are, enjoying the festive-spirited lion dance 

Be curious

Why is curiosity so important?

1. It makes your mind active instead of passive.

Curious people always ask questions and search for answers in their minds. Their minds are always active. Since the mind is like a muscle which becomes stronger through continual exercise, the mental exercise caused by curiosity makes your mind stronger and stronger.It makes your mind observant of new ideas. How things work – learn the culture context and how to navigate it from that lens.

2, When you are curious about something, your mind expects and anticipates new ideas related to it. When the ideas come they will soon be recognized. It opens up new worlds and possibilities. If we suspend any judgments and allow that...
