Working from home is awesome … right up until the cat throws up on your computer. And your neighbor, who you can only assume is building a time machine, starts firing up all sorts of power tools and noisy machinery across the street. Written by Erik Devaney.

For many modern professionals, working from home every once in a while is a luxury that our respective companies afford us. But which environment actually allows us to be more productive: the home office or the office office?

At the home office, however, I find that it’s easy for you to become your own worst enemy. Because when you’re not surrounded by coworkers, you’re free to drop those pesky inhibitions. At the home office, no one’s watching. You don’t necessarily feel that same peer pressure or communal obligation to get stuff done. When I work from home, I wake up, put on a pot of coffee, and start working immediately – much earlier normal working hours.

The article covers:

  • Get started early
  • Pretend like you are going into the office
  • Structure your day like you would in the office
  • Choose a dedicated work space
  • Don’t stay at home
