Working From Home Sucks
(if Not Done Properly)

Reading Time: 5 minutes

It is often glorified and hyped. Especially now. But working from home isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. And if you don’t prepare properly, you will taste the bad side of this otherwise incredible perk.

Cool. What was your point again?

Let me explain.

Offices are built for proper work. Chances are, your home isn’t.

Why? Well, because… it’s your home. It was made for something else.

Every work gets tedious and boring sometimes. No matter what you do. Even if you love it tremendously. There will be dull, repetitive, and boring aspects of it. Why would you associate your cozy apartment with something like that?

We spend up to 35 percent of our productive time at work. Shouldn’t we at least make it, so it doesn’t suck?
