Why I like working at home

Sometimes I am in a mood where working at home just won’t work, because it is work I don’t want to do so I don’t. I find other chores to do instead.

But today I have work to do that has a deadline, and I am home, so it is what it is. BUT… the work I have to do has 6 sections. I have decided that I can reward myself as I complete each section by knitting one row on the sweater sleeve and one round on the socks. Then I can read whatever blogs hit my reader since the last break, and then I can write this one post before I head back to the next section. Isn’t it a bit scary how I am about making rules for myself? Let’s not think about levels of OCD. 🙂

I will say that if I sit down and work, things do get done much faster at home than they would if I were in the office. Something about coworkers and distracting interruptions for conversations with people I really like vs. sitting home with only the cats.

Back to work!

  1. yes! me too! when I have definite tasks to do, I’m much more efficient at home. When I have more general stuff that needs to get done “sometime”, I’m much more efficient at the office.

  2. I do this!! I will say “if you empty the dishwasher, you can have a cup of coffee. If you fold laundry, you can knit for 20 minutes.” It’s the only way to her stuff done 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
