The commute was a big thing for me. I was a dental technician for 15 years. After switching careers, I did some quick math and realized I lost a little over 6 full months of my life to a commute. 🤮
Trying to convince people to break the old school mentality is a bit of a challenge. I regularly have this conversation with my boss in pushing for 100% remote work (I'm at 60-80% now, depending on the week).
My hope is that with so many people (and companies) pushing for it, it'll become the norm sooner rather than later.
That's why it's on us to push on this. If a recruiter is not able to find developers that will work from a regular office, they will push for remote with their clients...
If many more companies embrace the remote work culture, all the others will.
Soon one big player (Google? Microsoft? Amazon? Uber?) will start to explicity look for remote workers. All the other will follow.
