With a lack of people in the office (none now due to Florida kinda dying), the excitement of weekend plans, and the thought of sleeping in until after the sun rises.
When I was in college, my dad was a guest lecturer – yes, I was that kid – and one of the things he told my class stuck with me all of these years, ‘I learned more in my first 6 months of work than I learned in four years of school.’
Never push off work, whether it is to other people or to your future self.
Getting to roll out of bed and start working has its perks but it turned into a struggle to separate my work and home life. While working in the office the second I leave and walk through my door to a kiss from my boyfriend that means I am home, no more work. That’s my time to myself. When we first started this WFH life I didn’t have that physical line that divided my life and it made it hard to say no to work.
I think we all need to embrace the coming changes. If we don’t embrace it, we’re just going to live in constant fear of what comes next, and that is no way to live.
So while WFH will still be trending in the coming months, have we proved yet that WFH can just become work? In reality, has anyone’s productivity gone down? How many have gone up?
