"80% of success is showing up." - Woody Allen.

No matter how you interpret his quote, you won't be successful in anything if all you do is sit around at home all day (although in today's age that's exactly how you make millions with YouTube, OnlyFans, Twitch...).
Personally connecting with people builds trust and relationships that can help you get ahead.

At the office you pick up on things.
I've had plenty of instances where I was stuck and a coworker asked me how it went and I explained the problem and they helped me or even someone who overheard was able to help me.
People also come to you with their problems, giving you new insights.
Of course it "hurts" productivity, if you measure productivity by lines of code.

I have a sort of 50/50 rule for my employees, but I'm a flexible employer.
My employees don't mind, we have fun at the office, they have a nice desk with plenty of space, they get work done, and it's a lot easier asking questions.
I'm convinced that a healthy mix is the best for everyone.
