Dear Son(2): Beware of working from home

Dear Jace,

I’ve been working at home for a few months now and it’s amazing – that’s the problem. Amazing in the sense that I can do what I want when I want. Lately, I’ve found myself taking naps after lunch, watching a movie in the middle of the day and snoozing my alarm clock – longer than usual. When you feel tired at the office, you simply shake it off – or grab a coffee. When you feel tired at home, you sleep it off.

That being said, working from home is possible as long as you listen to these warnings and stay self-aware. After all, it’s not how many hours you have in a day that matter, its how you use them.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time tonight to go in-depth but these tools shall help:

  • Structure – Plan each day ahead of time.
  • Prioritize – We tend to overestimate how much we can accomplish in a day. Prioritize the most important tasks and roll unfinished projects over to the following day.
  • Write – Try to write about the things you’ve learned (like this letter) or things you’ve accomplished. This is a key part of accomplishing self-awareness.
  • Test – Working from home is the best way to test new things and learn about yourself. Try new diets, new workout schedules, new sleep schedules, etc…

 

Sincerely yours,

Jace Williams
