My personal theory is that it isn’t the coffee. Or the buzz it gives them. This is another advantage cited by Gladwell. Writing “seems like a fun activity now,” he says. “Kind of casual. It’s been more seamlessly integrated into my life and that’s made it much more pleasurable.” Newbies to working remotely almost always agree. Being out in the world during the middle of the workday almost feels like getting away with something, even for people who actually waste a lot more time in office settings reading ESPN.com, gossiping with colleagues, or taking long lunches.
