No, of course I haven’t, but thank you for reading! In fact on the curve of learning, I’m not even off the bottom of the curve yet. What I am, is starting to think about it – a lot. This is partly because I’m moving closer to work (much closer) and am worried that I will miss the clear divide 12 miles puts between my office and my home.
I’m also planning what my workspace at home will look like in my new house and how not to resent working in my home. Let’s face it, we all do it. Now that emails need responses as quick as texts and can be completed from our gardens, we’re all letting work encroach on our home lives.
To most outsiders my output levels are pretty high. I get through a lot. Partly because I have to, but mostly because that’s innately who I am. Of course I make a rod for my own back. As things get even busier, my current CEO role as ‘jack of all trades’ is not going to disappear overnight.
Through some careful naval gazing, I’ve realised one thing I do to prevent myself from resenting working from home and it’s happened automatically. I save the ‘fun’ work-related activities to the weekend (this is being written on a Sunday afternoon). That way I can’t resent it. The pension stuff I’ve got to sort out can be done on Tuesday afternoon at the office – much less fun.
What’s your trick for not resenting it?
Am I just putting the pension stuff off?
