Escape 9-5 and live anywhere Part-5 (The Conclusion)
If you’ve followed all the previous steps – particularly if you’ve started outsourcing and the side business you created with your spare time is beginning to roll in consistent cash – you’re near the point where quitting your job is feasible. But first, you will want to negotiate remote working conditions so you can test your lifestyle of freedom while still having money from your job. You will need the remote work especially if your business is yet to comfortably cater to your financial needs.
Earlier we discussed how being super productive will make it easier to negotiate remote work; but you need something more than productivity – you need a strategy, because it’s not always a walk in the part to talk management into allowing you to work from anywhere in the world. What your company’s management needs to see is how your working from home will contribute more to the organization than working from the office. And it’s the duty of your strategy to show them that.
Consider Deepak experience with his boss. Because of his plan to negotiate remote work, Deepak started putting in the effort to increase his productivity – and consequently, his value to the company.
Additionally, he ensured the company invested in him so that it would be hard for them to let him go. Next, he called in sick for two days. Deepak used these days to do his office work remotely. He made sure he performed more than he usually did at the office. He resumed after two days and was ready to negotiate remote work. Deepak started by asking for two remote workdays -Monday and Tuesday – he used that approach because it’s much easier for his boss to accept two days of remote work than all five days at once.
The result? Deepak did his best to impress his boss, then leveraged on his super performance to negotiate four days remote work, and then complete remote work – the entire five days a week.
He is now only required to show up at the organization during crucial meetings.
You can apply his strategy too. The most important things are your ability to show a high degree of competence and reliability.
