When I first started ‘working from home' about 7 years ago, I thought I would be really focused on my work. Sure enough I was – for about a nano-second. Until I became distracted and quite often found myself in my laundry or emptying the dishwasher and wondering how the hell I got there when I was supposed to be working!
I should have known really because office ‘casual Fridays‘ for me were a disaster. Whenever I tried wearing jeans and flat shoes to the office it literally stopped my brain from working as it should. For years I was the only one turning up for work in my suit and heels but my workmates got it. They knew that I may as well have stayed home than to try to go casual – certainly staying home might have got more work done.
Thank goodness those days are over,in more ways than one, but I did put a little bit of info together called 8 Tips on Working from Home. This might just help those who have recently been ‘forced' to work from home at this time of chaos.
Always looking for the bright side! I live in an apartment so my commute to work is almost instantaneous – not even the ‘one-minute commute‘ we hear about – but a ‘30 second commute'. Not to mention the saving in petrol.
