My job used to be a place I went to. If my car broke down, I didn’t work. If the roads were too icy to drive on, I didn’t work. If I had to stay home waiting for a repair person, I didn’t work. I suppose I could have sat down with a pad of paper and wrote PLM code (my first professional programming language) by hand, but that wasn’t very practical.
These days, work is something I do and not a place I go. I work at home. I work from airports and hotel rooms. I’ve worked at my kid’s baseball games and swim meets. Today I am working from the cabin in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
