When I finished up college, I accepted a 9 to 5 job in the office space.
I did it because everyone did it.
I showed up to the job, did the work and left each day. I got an hour lunch and I didn’t really like my work. This lasted a whole year before I was over it. I dreaded going to work, not because I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing, but because there was nothing new and it didn’t fit well with my mindset, half the time, I was just finding scheduled job and finding ways to pass time because I was already finished with our work. That’s the thing about working in an office love this. Even if you have nothing to do, you’re expected to hang there and look scheduled until multiple. After making a decision this office life wasn’t for me, I accepted a job that allowed myself and others to work from home. It’s been great, and I’m so thrilled I made the switch. One thing I didn’t expect to adore so much about working from home, was the control over the temperature of our job environment. I keep the climate control at exactly a few degrees while working, because it’s sizzling enough to stay focused but not heated enough to fall asleep. I didn’t notice how much temperature had an effect on our job performance. I find that I’m more productive when I’m content with the temperature. In our old office, I’d always wear layers because I never knew how sizzling or cold it would be.
