A colleague of mine just posted a picture of his "office" today... showing his laptop, with his barefeet showing beneath, immersed in the sand at the beach. That was his view, today.
Now, of course, my OCD got the better of me, and I started worrying over random bits of sand mucking up the works of my costly laptop. But as I thought about it... (no, no... I did not throw on a pair of waders, and head to the beach), I thought about just how lucky we are, that much of our work can be handled from just about anywhere.
As we speak, I am on my laptop in my mother's hospital room, (not nearly as fun as the beach) conducting business (maybe not quite as 'usual'), and getting things done. With my laptop and my cell phone, I am also able to be here, for my mother, holding her hand and helping her through a recent illness.
Ain't that grand?
Now, about that beach?
