Working from home! Oh, the benefits!

  • No boss to tell you what to do
  • Your time is your own
  • You're home with your family
Ha! Aren't those same benefits sometimes the very stumbling blocks to getting work done from home?

"No boss to tell you what to do" sounds great until you realize that this means you answer to yourself!

  • You have to make sure you start work on time
  • You have to make sure you stop work on time

"Your time is your own" may give us peace of mind knowing that we can always do it tomorrow... as long as we didn't say the same thing yesterday.

"You're home with your family" is only great if you're talking to them and listening to them once and a while - right?

For me, finding the time to take a shower is probably #1 on my list of top ten struggles when it comes to working from home (as I mentioned in this article on Personal Hygiene In The Workplace) and if you have sweat glands, (which I am assuming you do) you understand that one can only put off bathing for so long!

We Should Be Thankful For Mirrors!

If I didn't periodically scare myself to death upon seeing my reflection in the mirror, who knows when I'd take a shower... or if I'd even brush my hair!

Do you have a "working from home benefit" of your own that you struggle with?
