Anything is Possible
How Awesome Is This?

So, How's That Whole Working from Home Thing Going?

Home OfficeI've been working on and off since 7 a.m. and plan to continue doing so until I fall asleep.

I just wanted to see what that would be like.

I am getting things done, but also spend a lot of time unfocused. Spinning my wheels.

To-do lists I make, but I need a plan of attack. A long and short term agenda that I can tangibly see changing.

I spend a lot of time in this studio. Good thing I like it in here.

I am working on projects big and small. Doing new things is exhilarating. I enjoy this gig so much so far, so no complaints as of yet. Frankly, it suits my hermit-like tendencies just fine.

When I need to, I get out. I need to get out of the habit of my afternoon nap, but I try to start bright and early since the rest of my team is on Eastern Time, so I usually crash for an hour around 2. Then get back to it.

I have saved lots of money on food. I cook (I use the term loosely) most of my meals, rather than pay $10 for Downtown Sandwiches. Though, I kinda miss those fancy pants sandwiches.

What about getting a cat? I definitely need something to talk to. But I worry about all my various long weekends away. I'm not even sure my lease allows it.

I had all these grand plans to work out every day, but that hasn't happened. Surprise. And it was gorgeous out today, too, no excuses.

But like I said, I've been working on and off all day. It's dark now, and I hit the keyboard at 7 a.m. A lot of it is preparing posts and content for when I am away at a wedding this weekend in Sacramento. And then the big picture stuff. I just don't want to get behind. Managing myself, mostly, is not something I have ever done, not by a long shot. I'm learning as I go.

Today is an experiment. I wanted to pull ahead, so as not to stress about the upcoming days away.

I relish the change. The challenge. It's totally different, and I dig it.

And I'm excited for what's around the bend.

Dude, look into coworking NOW before you burn out on working from home. Even just one day a week -- so so sooooooo worth it!
