The office of the future doesn’t have large wooden desks with easy-lean rolling chairs. It probably doesn’t have desks at all. It doesn’t have bulky computers with multiple monitors and a cacophony of wires stuffed into a cubicle. It doesn’t even have cubicles.
The office of the future is a community. It is a living, breathing entity that exists in the very architecture of the building it inhabits, in the very lives we live. The office of the future will be the entire world, integrated for efficiency and to inspire the individual to maximize his or her creativity, because creativity applied at the social level is the real source of wealth and power.
We will work together separately in the office of the future. There will be no government in the office of the future, only a community of like minded individuals working toward progress. There will be no religion either. We will use our output, and expertise and thirst for knowledge, as the measure of success. Heaven will always lie ahead, in the office of the future.
Everyone will find happiness in the office of the future. People will not have to work 40 hours a week. They will work what they need to get the job done. Creativity requires rest. This is what the leaders of the future office will understand. They who cannot work, who don’t exercise their creativity, will not be in the office of the future.
Creativity requires a transparent bit. Technology will be transparent in the office of the future. People will not want to work with you if you are looking to others for direction — they will wonder if you are lost — in the office of the future.
We will find happiness and success in the office of the future. We will work hard in the office of the future. We will not tolerate lackluster performances or anyone who isn’t willing to contribute, in the office of the future.
