I remember when I first told some friends that my new job required me to work from home–a lot of them commended me and said that they didn’t think that they could do it. Their biggest concerns was that they would get too lonely or wouldn’t be able to stay on task. I was actually surprised at the people who said that because they seemed very independent and like they would be able to handle it.
Admittedly, there are times that I do get a little lonely and miss being immersed in the team environment but I have found ways to make it work. I didn’t really have any concerns about staying on task. I always was either working on my blog or studying for the Professional Engineering or LEED exams that I had to keep a strict schedule for if I wanted to get them done.
Although my tips seem really straight forward, I find a lot of people are curious to how I personally make working remotely work.
