THURSDAY THOUGHTS! - How easy have you adapted to working on the go?

Posted by | July 12, 2012 | Thursday Thoughts | No Comments

As I sat on a train to Bristol, looking around me, I see many folk starting their working day, with the use of mobile devices. Equally, with the imminent arrival of the London 2012 Olympics, more and more of us are being encouraged to work from home. But how easy do you find working, often alone, either at home or on the move?

    An easy one at last. I loved working from home and do miss it. You have to be disciplined to start work and also disciplined to stop work. You are far more productive as those little distractions of people popping in to ask you something stop and your quality of work improves as your concentration skills are enhanced. Don’t get me wrong you do have to balance the need for social interaction so visits and meetings are important. Sometimes myself and another remote worker used to put our phones on speaker phone and chat whilst we worked to keep sane. I try and get time to work from home to get “my head down” and get something finished. If you have never done it before use this opportunity to give it a try and see how much difference it makes; you can sleep later when the office is two seconds away, you and drink and eat properly and it is better for the environment as you aren’t travelling. Be careful though you may never want to go back to the office.

    Glad you like this weeks question Peggy 🙂 I agree, I tend to eat and drink better when I’m working from home, and yes, my productivity is hugely enhanced. Actually, I have better IT at home than I do at the office so its fast becoming my “go to” place to get more and more done. I’m still learning about the clocking off bit though! I’m hoping this way of working will become much more of a daily feature for me in the future 🙂
