There are lots of advantages to working at home (every day is dress-down day), but there are pitfalls as well. In his article, 7 Winning Strategies for Working from Home, Peter Economy offers common sense suggestions that aren't always as easy as they sound. I especially struggle with #7 ("Don't go overboard"), and although I agree with the sentiment behind #1 ("Find your space"), one of the things I enjoy most about working from home is deciding where I want to work. Some days, it's the dining room table. Other days, the sofa in the living room or the family room (a.k.a "the playroom" and "the man cave") becomes my temporary workspace, and some days, I even end up in the office. And, when I've had enough of my home office, I go to my satellite office, a.k.a. Starbucks.
I mean, just because I'm in my pajamas, that doesn't mean I'm not working.
