Working from home often means you have an office pet.
Working from home has its benefits and drawbacks. I love the flexibility it allows me, I love being able to create my own work environment, and I really love not having to adhere to a business-y dress code. But I’ve decided my work-at-home life could use a bit more structure in order for me to up my productivity, increase my bottom line and other things business people say. Oh yeah, and create a more harmonious work-life balance, whatever that is.
Here’s a list of 13 things I’m guilty of as someone who works from home. Some are guilty perks, but most are things I need to change. Let me know if you’re in the same boat:
I don't keep my desk area organized enough.
Thankfully I do have everything I need for an actual home office: a nice sturdy desk that's big enough to hold a printer, a filing cabinet, plenty of drawers. The problem is, I haven't done a very good job of organizing my paperwork, so half the time I end up using my laptop on the kitchen table instead. Time to throw away the stuff I don't need and put away the rest.Photo credit: Flickr user hownowdesign
