Life lesson #078 from Jason Fried and Daniel Heinemeier Hansson, Remote
If you can’t let your employees work from home out of fear they’ll slack off without your supervision, you’re a babysitter, not a manager.
Remote work is then very likely the least of your problems; you shouldn’t hire people you don’t trust, or work for bosses who don’t trust you. If you’re not trusted to work remotely, why are you trusted to do anything at all?
