Working from home is a gift… until it becomes a curse. It’s kind of like a love-hate relationship. I love that I can get to the office in less than a minute… but I miss my old commute.
It was a 30 minute ride through the country. I listened to a really funny morning show and it made me laugh and it was a part of my routine. It was a calming routine that I went through 5 days a week.
On the way home I was able to decompress from my day and take the ride as a time of transition from my work day to my personal life. Working from home means I am literally jumping from my personal life to my professional life in less than a minute and then from my business life back to my professional life.
It’s weird to be racking my brain about marketing and sales figures and then a single minute later be holding my 18-month old and giving him lots of kisses and love.
Working from home also means I am at home ALL THE TIME. Sure, I go to the grocery store and I walk around town almost daily. But for the most part… I have no outside place to go and spend considerable time.
I tried working from a coffeeshop… and I can do it for some tasks but for the most part I sit there and people watch. I mean I get work done, but I know if I am at my desk in my office at my home… I’ll get a whole lot more done!
Working from home is great and I count my blessings often. Generally one of the best parts of working from home is I can listen to any music I want and burn incense freely. I think that makes it worth it 🙂
