The Naked Truth About Working From Home

The Naked Truth About Working From Home Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanWorking from home definitely has it’s advantages.  How many of us have spent the entire day working in our PJ’s or have jumped out of the shower to take a business call totally naked?  Some people even admit to taking client calls while sitting on the john.
I had been working in an office since I was 19. I loved the routine and it took me a long time to get used to working at home when I left Wall Street. One thing I learned very quickly is – it takes lots of discipline when you only have to answer to yourself.  And home offers tons of distractions.
I am my own boss so I really don’t have anyone to answer to, but lots of people working from home are working for companies that offer that perk. So are these folks being entirely honest about time spent working on company business?
The findings of a poll conducted by electronic cigarette retailer ecigarettedirect.co.uk  revealed that 72 per cent of home workers surveyed catch up on household chores on their company’s time.

And nearly a third admit they had done their food or clothes shopping while technically ‘at work’.

A healthy four in ten of those questioned admitted to visiting the gym or doing some other form of exercise while in ‘the office’, but for 15 per cent the best perk was being able to smoke in the ‘office’, with many saying they engineered days away from the workplace just for that reason.

One respondent said: ‘The problem with working from home is the lines and divisions between private and professional life become blurred. ‘It’s easy to forget you’re meant to be working, especially if your partner is home as well.’  Nothing better than a little afternoon delight.

Another said: ‘I love to go shopping during work time because I can get my chores done instead of having to do them on the weekend when the supermarket is so much busier.

I must admit that I have gotten used to the flexibility of working from my home office and yes I do get easily distracted.  But bottom line –  whatever I need to get done – gets done.
