Have you seen the astonishing movie Coco? As a remote worker, this movie truly struck me and made me realize that the lessons I learned from this masterpiece can be implemented in my personal and professional career.
With that said, I gathered the most impactful moments from the movie to bring you 5 Lessons From Coco for Remote Workers:
The Day of the Dead
The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday where families gather to celebrate and welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion. In this celebration, one can learn that the certainty of death should be accepted instead of feared. With that said, death is as inevitable as the day you’ll retire from your professional career.
“Día de Muertos has begun! It’s the one night of the year our ancestors can come visit us.” -Abuelita
Your time in the workplace is short. If the time comes for you to retire, you’ll undoubtedly want to do so with joy in your heart. Your teammates should speak of you as someone who made a difference; “that person left footprints from the ground to the highest mountain—a hard worker who assisted in discovering the most beautiful view on planet earth.”
- Be kind and generous—never judge,
- always assist your team members if you find the time,
- have an excuse-free attitude and
- live your life to the fullest.
Hard Work Always Wins
You can be the fastest learner in the world, but if you don’t put effort into learning, you might not reach your full potential. A great virtual assistant works endless hours honing their skills to achieve satisfying results.
“Success doesn’t come for free. You have to do whatever it takes to seize your moment.” – Ernesto de la Cruz
A lesson we learned from Miguel, a musician whose family disapproved of his dreams, is to never give up on your dreams. There will be obstacles in your professional career that you need to face. Face them with your head held high. Live in the moment, trust yourself, never stop learning, and work hard! Before you even realize it, you’ll accomplish the unthinkable!
Passion Brings Pure Joy
Everyone was against Miguel’s dreams. But he never lost the passion he had for music. With that said, the lesson we learned from this spectacular movie is that you should do what makes you happy.
“One cannot deny who one is meant to be.” – Ernesto de la Cruz

Family Is Forever
Throughout this stunning and utterly charming film, we are reminded of the importance of family. What’s more, it shows us the significance of supporting one another through all the trials in life.
We saw how Miguel left his family to pursue his dreams. After learning that Hector was his great-great-grandfather, he realized how important family is.
“We may have our differences, but nothing’s more important than family.” – Miguel
If you are fortunate enough to have a family that loves and cares for you, take a moment to think back to the times they have been there for you. Through the ups and downs of life, family is always one call away.
Sometimes we get extremely busy with our day-to-day schedule. But we should never forget the people who have been there for us when we needed them the most. We learned that it’s important to be thankful and always treat our family with the utmost respect.
Lessons and Joy Add Up to Incredible Memories
Think of where you started and how far you’ve come. Are you proud of the person you’ve become? Pat yourself on the back for the things you have accomplished. Take a moment to celebrate the lives of those who have passed, and who have made a positive and lasting impact on your life.
We live in the present, and the past will never be seen again, but we can hold on to every memory that brought us joy. We can remember our mistakes in order to learn from them. With that said, we should keep working to become the best version of ourselves.
“Brings back memories. Gracias.” – Chicharron
Use the time you have in your personal and professional lives to create spectacular moments that you will remember in 50 years. Live your life to the absolute fullest!
