With Flexiple becoming a remote company, a lot of things have changed in my life. I have to be honest - I am largely an introverted person. So meeting & talking to people is not my preference.
Add to this the crazy commute in the clogged & "potholed" roads of Bangalore, it was quite a dreary experience. But the toughest thing for me each day was to leave my dog, Rocket (he's like my son), at home with a caretaker.
My wife (jokingly 😬) mentions that I have a heart of stone - the point being that it is tough to make me emotional about most things. And then decided that Rocket is the only one capable of it - I have to accept it to be true 😅
So, working remotely, I'm able to spend quality time with Rocket 🐕
He lends a calming influence by:
🐶 Giving cute looks for treats
🤓 Demanding a belly rub
😳 Asking me to sit next to him
Remote work rocks 🤘🏼. I can't go back to an office now!
If you have become fully remote only recently, what has your experience been? Happy or sad?
