Excerpt from the interview:

"I consider an offsite a state of mind rather than a physical location.

Going to a different location can help you achieve this state of mind. Depending on your preference, it may be a different location at your house, a coffee shop, a coworking location, or a different continent.

The idea is to get yourself away from daily tasks and to put your brain into a different gear."
