Working From Home

Written on Thursday, July 10, 2008 by Deeze

Yesterday, I had a major proponent for a Project that I've been working on since I started this job to finish out, and I figured it would be more productive for me to finish at home instead of spending 1.5 hours to get dressed and commute back and forth.

I've noticed that when I work at home, I can actually perform my job at a higher level on days that I don't have meetings. When I'm in the office, I have my ipod on anyway, so it's not like I interact with anyone, I'm in my own music world. The difference is I'm conscious of quitting time, while at home, it really doesn't matter when I finish because I have no commute. Although I pulled a 12+ hour day, I feel a lot better because I started at 630 am and finished around 7, and still had the rest of the evening.

At some point I should be working from home 2-3 days per week because I don't see clients or have meetings for the most part. With the was gas prices are, I won't be able to come into the office but 2-3 days per week anyway. Although I can work from home when I want, I am going to request a standard work from home day (probably Thursday instead of Friday to not seem like a slacker).
