In the movie 'The Matrix', Neo is offered the choice between a red pill and a blue pill by Morpheus.

Morpheus explains that the Matrix is an illusion. He says, "You take the blue pill — the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill — you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes."

Each one of us will be faced with an equally daunting choice soon - work remotely or in-office.

Slack announced (finally!) that it will now offer the option of permanent remote work to all of its employees in line with a wave of companies doing so - Facebook, Twitter, Square, Shopify, Coinbase.

You want to continue believing that work happens only in office from 9-to-6 - please take the blue pill.

Is the path of professional freedom that you desire - the red pill is waiting for you.

But mind you, just as Morpheus told Neo, taking the red pill will lead you onto a more difficult path because your gains are that much higher.

So what’s it going to be Neo?
