Remote working is becoming readily available for many different fields, but does that mean working from home is the right way ahead? Like anything, it depends on the circumstances and your goals. Let’s look at a couple different alternatives and explore when is the best time to get out of the home office or when we should just work from home.
In the book “The 4-Hour Work Week” (4HWW) by Tim Ferriss, there’s a section on top mistakes from those who live a flexible lifestyle. According to Tim, a common slipup is “working where you live, sleep, or should relax.” Having a specified environment for work and only work means it’s harder for your work to interfere with life when you’re at home or out with friends. His suggestion is to avoid the living room and coffee shop as an office, consider using a co-working space.
In the experiences here at Zoseco, we’ve seen first-hand how some people who come to our coworking space are able to accomplish more because they’re focused while there here. We also have seen it go one step further, where the people here are not just working, but also enjoying their experience with other hard-working and driven individuals.
