In my humble opinion, Remote working is a great way to accelerate your career. You are forced to be self-aware, you develop a growth mindset, and have better learning opportunities especially if you are working with folks around the globe. This eventually makes you anti-fragile(better prepared for the future) than your peers who have a traditional career. I mean generally, this is true.
That said, there are some unique challenges of working remote from India.
The vision of the RI project is to help folks prosper in their career by sharing best practices to overcome the unique challenges of working remotely from India. And hopefully, once they have gained enough skills and financial strength, we will help them take on bigger projects like starting a small company or initiating a social project in their local city or town, or simply starting a local farm.
Gradually, the RemoteIndian community will be the home of the most ambitious individuals in India. Folks who have a work-life which is “remotely different” from the norm.
Thoughts informing the vision and structure of RemoteIndian
“The opposite of belonging is to feel isolated and always (all ways) on the margin, an outsider. To belong is to know, even in the middle of the night, that I am among friends.” - Peter Block, Community: The Structure of Belonging
“Hospitality is the welcoming of strangers, and generosity is an offer with no expectation of return. These are two elements that we want to nurture as we work to create, strengthen, and restore our communities. This will not occur in a culture dominated by isolation, and its correlate, fear.” - Peter Block, Community: The Structure of Belonging
“Every time we gather becomes a model of the future we want to create.” - Peter Block, Community: The Structure of Belonging
"It’s like when you were a kid, and you had a clubhouse… it’s a way to feel like part of a community.” - Alex Hillman, the importance of a clubhouse
