Working from home

March 22nd, 2006 at 04:19 am

I'm doing something I swore I'd never do.

I'm bringing home work. I've had a lot of work this month. It's reflected in my billings, but that doesn't give me an excuse to slide.

I've had to go back to work with the kids twice this month and 3 times I've brought work from home.

I hate this. But, I'm on the computer at home anyway. It isn't that much more effort. But it's still a pain.

In many ways I wonder if I'm setting myself up to need to do it more often. If I accomplish more, will they give me more? Right now I'm working with the assumption that this is just an extremely busy time and it will get better. But, I will reevaluate that assumption as time goes on.

The one good thing about working at home? I can actually start something and finish it without interruptions. I feel like I'm constantly running at work but having to switch gears in a millisecond so that our clients don't feel the pressure.

    After 10+ years of 50+ hrs a week and bringing home work to boot, I can offer this:

    * There will always be more to get done at work. (You will probably never get it all done- no matter how much you bring home)
    * Yes, working from home is uninterrupted time that you can get more accomplished, but at what cost to those precious moments with your family.
    * Make sure you take time for YOU...unfortunately, this is often the last priority on our list...and it should be the first.
    * Burnout is real.

    I guess my advise for what it's worth, would be to try to keep work and home separate if at all possible. BALANCE is vital to a healthy, happy you (and your family)

    sorry if Im outa line with the opinion, I am just passionate about this since I lived it for so long...
