What No One Tells You About Working From Home

 

There are two sides of the debate: those who think telecommuting and work from home jobs are the best innovation since sliced bread, and those who think work from home jobs are destroying productivity and accountability in the workplace.

The survey data is constantly in review, but some of the best information about the truths of working from home in 2018 comes from those in the midst of it. Here are some common admissions from WFH (work from home) sorts about the reality of the day-to-day.

Another way to prove your dedication to your real work is by setting boundaries and office hours that you are unwilling to break. If you agree to every lunch date, people may think you have nothing better to do than catch up with friends on a Tuesday afternoon.

Be prepared for this at first, and proactively plan against it.
