The most valuable real estate

I used to think that the hustle and bustle of a busy research lab was the best place to get things done. When everyone is rushing about, taking meetings, discussing stuff, it feels as though a lot is happening.

Yet now that I am working from home, I realize that I was all wrong. What really promotes productivity is peace and quiet. To get something done, you need to have a clear and uncluttered space between your ears.

After this pandemic is over, I wonder whether we will all go back to those dysfunctional ways. Will we all once again crowd into spaces together, rush about having meetings and discussing everything endlessly?

Or will remember that the best soil for growing productivity is a sense of peace and quiet? Will we remember that the most valuable real estate of all is that uncluttered space between your ears?
