Chris Gonzales, On Working from Home
The funny thing I’ve noticed is that it seems like each pro is also its own con.
I worked at home, both remotely and for myself, for about 10 years of my career. Gonzales hits it right on. The pros are the cons. Being around your family; both good and bad. Setting your own schedule; both good and bad. And being away from people; both good and bad.
The best of both worlds, perhaps, would be having the option of where to work. Right now our office is about a 10-minute drive from our home. 90% of the time I work in the office (and we try to keep library rules between 10am-2pm which keeps it bearable). But every now and then I work from home or from a cafe. Having the option has been absolutely wonderful.
