I don't think almost any remote job requires people's full attention.
In fact I often see people who do mundane jobs (IE: a young lady sitting in front of a slide in a children's play center) just going through social media on their phones for hours, when they could be reading a book or learning something interesting. I'm not in their shoes, but we as a population are just chasing the wrong things.
I read many programming books on the small screen of my phone when I had to walk and rock my children to sleep for hours every day.
