“Working from home can be an amazing experience if it is planned correctly—and an unmitigated disaster if it’s not. More importantly, if handled incorrectly there can be a lot of friction in your home. Why? Because, while your spouse and kids go off to work and school to then come home to their “sanctuary,” you are carefully and thoughtfully converting your sanctuary into a work space for a finite number of hours each day. This is a major psychological challenge.
I have worked from home for more than a decade, so it’s fair to say I have a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn’t; what lines to draw and what lines not to draw to keep you sane and your work time and space respected by your family.”
