I was thinking today that in the past 5 months now, I've spent most of time on the same chair in the same room working. Since the the crisis and the lock down has started I've managed to work more from home.
For me it was a dream, as I find the commute a real time waster. If I need to see the customer, I travel to them as customers don't come to us. I go to the office only when it is really hot outside or if I have to get money back for the firm. This is it.
I was thinking that by working from home, I will be able to do a lot more stuff private, but it is quite the opposite, I work even more for my company than before. So I do something wrong. I've tried to diminish the time spent in front of the screen, but the work keeps on adding and adding.
I've made a deal with my wife, so that she takes my laptop in the evening to spend time with the family and I'm allowed to work again when everyone is sleeping.
Also, i think I have to make a deal with her on new objective. I have to give her the work laptop at 17:30 and will need to work at least an hour on my other projects. Else I lose focus on them.
This is the danger of working from home, in pjs. that sometimes work infects also other aspects of life. I think more and more, work from home will be practiced, as the companies will see that they save money with the office and that people deliver more than usual.
How do you see it?
