Paperless Work and Lifestyle Design with Information
& Communication Technology
This is the complete guide to becoming a location- and time-flexible paperless worker.
Our world and our travel habits, as well as the ways that we gather, analyze, and communicate information, have evolved at an unprecedented pace over the past
fifty years, mainly because of advances in transportation, and communication and information technology. These advances have even outpaced our ability to adapt to them and to take full advantage of technologies and concepts that can transform our lives and business practices into ones that are more natural, environmentally friendlier, and more productive.

This book will provide guidance at both a theoretical and a conceptual level, as well as at a more practical level
on how to use information and communication
technology to become paperless. The overall aim
is to provide guidance about how to implement ICT

This book will help you transition from a 9-to-5 lifestyle to a more flexible working style, one that will enable you to perform the same work (or even more work) while enjoying your favorite locations with family and friends, and without the need to commute.
This guide is beneficial to anyone, regardless of the type of work he or she performs. While this guidance may be most useful to those who earn their living through office-based practices, people who earn their living by performing work that is confined to a specific location and specific time schedules will also find opportunities here for improving life quality. The
paperless practices will produce profound transformations, both at a personal,
or micro, and at a societal and corporate, or macro level.
The trend is driven from both directions, or
levels, since the proposed changes in individual work styles and lifestyles will eventually impact the organizational and business levels, and
