Imagine working at home

When you think about working from home, what comes to mind?  Do you think about all the freedom you would have?  Do you think about all the work you could get done?  Do you think about the lack of supervision?  These can be great things when you work at home.  They can also be horrible things when you work from home.  It all depends on you and your personality.  Let’s look at why you may love or hate working at home.

People who work at home may love it

As mentioned before, people who work at home have a lot of freedom.  This is the total opposite of a typical work environment.  Generally, you may have your supervisor or boss ensuring you are actively engaged, which is another way of saying…make sure you are working.

When you work at home, you have more control over how you spend your day.  You have control over your schedule.  If you are working for a company, you must ensure you still meet any deadlines.  If you are working for yourself, you create the deadlines.

You know when you are most productive during the day.  You can tailor your schedule so it focuses on when you are most productive.  You should find that you can accomplish a lot more that way.

If you are self-motivated, energetic, and hard working, but crave freedom, you may find that you absolutely love the idea of working from home.  This environment could energize you even more and make you highly effective for the company you work for or your business.

People who work at home may hate it

People who work at home may also hate it.  You may find more distractions at home than you expected.  Usually, all your favorite things are at home.  The television, video games, the refrigerator, your family, etc may provide more distractions than expected.

You may enjoy the social aspects of having a normal job.  You may not be able to achieve that when you work from home because…all your friends will be at work.

If you prefer the order and schedule of a typical work place, you may find it difficult to adjust to the freedom of working at home.  Some people prefer order and routine, but cannot duplicate it at home.

You may prefer having a normal job.  If this sounds like you, then working from home may not be a good fit for you.  Of course, if you can make a few adjustments, then maybe it could be a good fit.

How can you work at home

It does take a special type of person to work at home.  You must be ambitious, focused, and disciplined to be effective.  People who work at home enjoy the freedom it provides, but they still meet their deadlines.  Whether the deadlines are set by themselves or their boss, they still must be met.  If you would like to work from home, it is highly possible.  If you want to do this for a company, you must research the benefits and present them to your boss.  If your boss agrees, you will be able to work at home.
