I've been working for one year at a fully remote startup. I feel that remote work empowers you by nature to be more productive. As long as you know what's making you productive and that you have the right habits, all is good :)
@bujold19 Totally agree. The interesting thing, though, is that I've been remote for years but the last two weeks have shifted my productivity into hyperdrive. I'm trying to get a good grasp on why so I can sustain it after this all clears.
I had to think a bit before answering - definitely had some super productive days but also had some not as productive as i'd like to be days. Those are ones where I found out how friends/family were being affected by the pandemic in negative ways and so I found it hard to focus on my work.
For me it's actually really funny. I moved town 6 months ago and quit work. Took some time off before looking for a new job and just landed a new job and started working 2 weeks ago so i was more productive the past 2 weeks than the past 6 months :)
