The Mindset You Need To Be Successful At Working From Home

A simple change in how you think about remote work can make your days instantly more productive and pleasant.

What does it take to make remote work successful? For both employees and entrepreneurs, a good tech setup and relatively distraction-free space is certainly essential. So are techniques to keep endless Zoom calls from destroying your productivity (and sanity). A modern approach to management that focuses on what people produce rather exactly how and when they produce it helps too.

But even with these basics in place, some people thrive in remote work while others struggle. Why is that? The nature of a team’s work clearly has something to do with it (experts say innovation is tougher at a distance), as does individual personality and seniority (young people benefit from the passive education of being around colleagues).

But, according to a fascinating new study out of the University of Cambridge recently published in Human-Computer Interaction, there’s another hidden factor that’s essential for remote work success — the right mindset.

The research team started from the same places that many bosses find themselves in today. There are about a million studies and surveys about remote work, and they often contradict each other on the benefits and drawbacks of remote setups. Which of these studies should business leaders believe?

The answer, according to this new research, is maybe all of them. Rather than finding that remote work is always good or always bad, the team discovered that mindset mattersmassively when it comes to remote work success. Those with the right mindset thrive in remote setups, and those without it don’t.

Best Job In America Starts At $145,000 And Has 14,000 Openings

Glassdoor released its top job for 2022 based on earning potential, overall job satisfaction rating and number of job openings

A six-figure salary and the option to work from home? It sounds too good to be true.

Job openings are rising, while workers continue to quit. The number of vacant jobs hit 10.9 million in December, up from 10.6 million the previous month, the Labor Department said this week. The job openings rate was steady at 6.8%.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made people reassess the role of work in their lives. Workers are burned out and looking for better benefits, shorter commutes, higher salaries and — critically — a more accommodating work-life balance.

If they spend eight hours a day at work, they don’t want to be unhappy and stressed out. Some workers, some polls suggest, are even fed up with how their employer treated them during the pandemic, and told their boss they had enough.

“Wages aren’t keeping up with inflation, so the only way for most employees to either get a step up in salaries is either to find a new firm or have one foot out the door,” Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James, told Barron’s.

On Wednesday, the careers website Glassdoor released its annual 50 Best Jobs in America for 2022. With so many workers on the move as we enter Year 3 of the pandemic, it makes particularly timely reading.

Once again, tech workers came out on top. Enterprise architects were No. 1 on Glassdoor’s list. They have a median base salary of $144,997 a year, 14,021 job openings and a satisfaction rating of 4.1 out of 5.0, according to the report.
