Is Working From Home For You?
For some job seekers, working from home is the ultimate dream. The idea of being able to earn money without dealing with annoying officemates, tiring commute to work, and the hassle of dressing up nicely make it very ideal for them. There are many examples of companies starting out of a garage or even some companies that are ran out of someone’s home to great success. A great example is this bamboo sock company that started out of a garage and has become one of the top sock companies in all of Australia.
These considerations are just but in reality, people did not know that to work beyond the confines of an office is extremely challenging and at the same time requires a lot of self-discipline. In this article, we will discuss the luring factors of working from home which can be a double-edged sword at the end.
‘A Flexible Schedule’
One of the perks of working from home is that it can give you much more control over your time. It may seem advantageous but having total freedom in your schedule can mean more hours of procrastination and less time of actually doing your projects or tasks.
‘Being with your family’
Most of the complaints of people working in a normal office are that they don’t have enough time for their family anymore. Obviously, if you work from home, this will not be a problem. Or maybe it will be?
Sure working alone feels really liberating especially knowing that there is no one to boss you around and check what you are doing from time to time. However, the downside is, you will miss the opportunity to interact and collaborate with other people physically which is a vital element to bring out the creative side of us.
‘Home work Vs. Work from Home’
Often times when you are working at home, the thin line that separates your job and household tasks become blurry. You will feel the strong urge to do the household chores because basically, you are at home. However, without you noticing, you’re already consuming all your time going to the local grocery to buy your supply for a week, cooking your dinner for the night, babysitting your 3-year old son and doing the laundry. Before you even know it, the day is already over, and the projects that you need to do in your actual job were left untouched.
‘Work never stops’
Since no one will be there to enforce strict working hours with you, eventually you will feel that you are working endlessly. The day will become night, and night becomes day as you will be free whether you want to start working at 2 PM or 2 AM. Above all, the lack of physical separation between home and work may contribute to your notion that what you are doing never stops.
In the end, you have to keep in mind that the decision of whether you will choose to give up your job in the corporate world or start working in the confines and comfort of your home will definitely be life-changing. That is why self-assessment and introspection are very important. Ask yourself these: do you really think you can commit yourself to it? Will this inspire you to work harder and be more productive in general? Will it contribute to your growth not just as an employee but more importantly as an individual? If your answer is a consistent yes, you know what do.
