New Ways of Working

Blogger Leo at ZenHabits has an entry called "12 New Rules of Working You Should Embrace Today," that includes some good ones, especially:

- Collaborate on documents, don’t email them

- People don’t have to be in an office (Yes, you can work from the beach!)

- Small teams are better than large teams

- Fewer tasks are better than many

- Meetings suck (True, but I have the answer.)

- Communication is a stream (This one seems especially zen-like, to me)

- Rest is as important as work (Amen, to that!)

Leo says, "Not all of these “rules” are accepted by the majority of people today — in fact, most aren’t. But a growing number of people are working this way, and I think a majority of people will work this way in the near future."

I hope he is right.

498th post! Quite an accomplishment. Congrats. This was a great post too! Now we need to convince AMA to start following some of your points!

Hey Jordan. Glad you like it. Yes, I am on a mission to change people's thinking re corporate culture, not at AMA, but more broadly.
