Although the future of work started leaning towards a hybrid work structure long before 2020, that future tilted towards fully working from home when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. The new reality forced many companies to adopt remote work policies to keep employees safe. Now working from home is a part of the new normal, and while some people still struggle to adjust, others have embraced the new reality.
This change can be good or not so good for creatives because creativity mostly thrives on connection and relativity. It’s Global Work From Home week, and today’s Creative Gist seeks the opinion of different creatives on the topic – is working from home the future of creativity or a recipe for distraction? Let’s dive in!

Is Remote Work Fostering Creativity or Distractions?
Is it easy to conclude that working from home is equally ideal for developing and executing innovative ideas as working from an official workspace? The jury is still out on that. However, as a creative, you still need to collaborate with other creatives, whether working from home or in an office. The success of either option depends on certain factors, including setting clear boundaries, establishing routines and maintaining clear communication/connection. With the right approach and mindset, you can leverage the benefits of both options to promote creativity and productivity.
Don’t take our word for it though. Do you think working from home is the future of creativity or a recipe for distraction? Please share your thoughts in the comment section.
