Working from a Home Office is not negotiable for some

I recently saw a post where someone was inferring that they were better than other consultants/mentors because they had a formal office and not working from home.

COVID has certainly changed that perception. I work from home and my clients are not concerned about it. Some are pleased to be able to come to my professional home office for greater confidentiality and security.

That’s why technology has driven change in how we work and where we work.

You can overcome isolation by joining kindred networks and making an effort to meet with others for coffee at various time each month.

It is important though if working long periods on your own that you have structure in your day. I program walks, exercise (rowing machine) etc and reading time every day.  The technology in my Apple watch also reminds me if I am sitting too much and to get moving.

Finally, I avoid going upstairs to my home office at night.
