I love working from home, but sometimes I have to deal with the distractions that come with it.
For instance, today is a beautiful fall day. I would love nothing better than to go out with my son and kick the ball around. Fortunately (or unfortunately) I have meetings scheduled most of the day and I can’t really act on these distractions and leave the home office.
I knew I would have trouble in the area of distractions so I designed my office in such a way that it is hard to act on the distractions. I have a door to my office that allows me to shut off most interruptions. I also chose a room with no windows so I am not drawn away from my computer screen.
