How to make “working from home” work

A quiet moment on a weekend away with my wife

Daniel Jalkut has published a terrific post titled “How to survive working at home” in which he touches on the thrills and challenges of “being your own boss” while “working from home”. I did this for many years and even though I’m currently employed, I still see the benefits of having developed some of these habits when I do get to work from home.

There are many advantages to working from home, but the privileges come with challenges that not everybody is equipped to handle. How will you manage your time, cope with isolation from coworkers, and draw a line between yourself and the hustle and bustle of family life? It’s not as easy as any of us imagined when we were daydreaming in our office jobs.
