The Most Difficult Thing About Working From Home

Obviously, I can’t speak for anyone else. But as someone who has worked from home for a while, I find self regulation the hardest part.

I need enough discipline to start and not to stop when I get distracted. So even though I love working from home, it’s still challenging.

I don’t like when people breathe down my neck. That said, I do like when others offer structure. I need deadlines to work effectively.

I enjoy the freedom and flexibility of working from home. I can create my own schedule. I’m able to work when I want to rather than when I have to.

Being able to work from home means I don’t need to leave the house every day. Then again, sometimes I want a change of scenery.

As a writer and blogger, I can do what I need to from almost anywhere.

Self discipline isn’t some innate skill. It takes time and effort to build. But being able to work independently is important.

I think working from home has advantages and disadvantages, just like everything else in the world. It’s not for everybody, but because I’m such a homebody, I can’t complain.

Personally I work best when somebody gives me specific instructions beforehand. And then gives me space to do the assigned task.

Everyone’s different, but having both structure and freedom is what I strive for.
