When I found out that my job at Spokal would require me to work from home, I was a mixed bag of emotions.
At first, you’re thrilled! Working from home has all those typical perks you might think they do, such as working in your pyjamas (hey, don’t judge – you would too!) to saving money on fuel, but people kept asking me how I would keep myself motivated? How would I keep myself on a schedule? How would I stop myself from taking naps?
Well, for one: I don’t nap. And as for the other points… I wasn’t sure.
And so I started to get nervous. Was I going to become too distracted? Was I going to let my work suffer? Was I going to even get it done?
So in June I started to work for Spokal from home. I also have a co-working space in town, so if I start to get a little stir crazy, I can always go there.
And for the first few weeks, everything went swimmingly!
And after a few months, I was still working my aaaa… uhm… fingers off.
