Last June, I decided to set up a home office and became a full-time remote worker. Looking back, it is one of the most intelligent business decisions I’ve made so far.
- My work commute is only about 20 steps now, instead of being up to 90 miles (one way).
- No more 3:30 a.m. wake-up alarms.
- No coworker drama or politics to distract me from my work.
- And I can wear my pajamas to work, occasionally.
The problem with a home office is — it’s in your home.
Most days, the home office is a huge convenience. Other days, it can feel like a curse.
Like when you realize it’s 9 p.m., you’re still in pajamas, and you missed lunch and dinner again. Sound familiar? That’s why we need rules for the home office.
