Have you seen “The Beach”? I would be surprised if you didn’t, but just in case – the plot centres on a young American looking for the perfect place to live. His search brings him to a secret secluded island in Thailand, where the events unfold further.
But in this post, I would prefer not to focus on the plot itself or Leonardo DiCaprio’s brilliant acting.
This search for a perfect spot reminded me of the search for a perfect working environment and I wondered whether most of us have gone through the same thing.
There is no shortage of working mode options today: traditional office, Google-style office, coffee-shop, home-based office or even working on a tropical island.
And even though we all know that there is no such thing as perfection, we all aim to get as close to it as we can.
In the upcoming blog series, we will try to explore what factors make for a great working environment and how our ideas to work, office and working style have changed over the years.
