Becoming? Been there since last year. Gotten better at managing it, but it's still not great

🙋‍♀️ that's me! Except to be honest I think it's more just wanting to not work while it's so nice out in the summer but looking out into my yard and seeing my dog doesn't make that any easier.

Yes. They reopened our offices and, while I knew I was unhappy and unmotivated before, I have been shocked at how much it helps me to go into the office every day.

Feels better to see other people working than just see out of the window.

I was really productive when wfh started last year but all of a sudden, as of last month or so, I can't focus during the day. I think it might be how bright it is, seeing cars come and go, etc. So I've been logging in at night and knocking stuff out, i have no problem focusing when it's dark lol

The last couple months of WFH have been difficult in terms of focus level for me. Guess you can call it “checking out.” Went into the office a couple times and was really productive, but seldom are folks going in to make it truly worth the commute

like

More productive at home. All of my work is backend so I need long periods of focus. Commute and office distractions kill my energy and productivity

like

Nawh, I feel I'm pretty focused here. I even been proactive on deliverables and timelines. It's been pretty good.

Far less productive but it’s the new model so it is what it is. We need to mix it up otherwise the appeal will die out for those that aren’t embracing the WFH style.

Totally 100%!

It’s the summer for me. We did this last year too, summer felt super unproductive for me and then it picked up again when things got busier

Yes but also more the project I’m on. When I’m busy I get stuff done when it’s not a procrastinate and do other stuff

I’m more productive than I’ve ever been tbh

Mixed responses, as I expected. For those who are in the struggle bus…what has helped? Wondering if I’m just experiencing some level of burn out.

Anyone lost all/most interest in their job since WFH started? Take away all the happy hours, socializing and cool agency in office perks and I realized wow I do not like my job lol. Would think all the time gained back would even it all out but nah. Anything I work on at any of the several esteemed agencies I’ve been at the past 3 years all just feels like Groundhog Day and boring/insufferable. Not sure if it’s because I remote freelance or it’s a real thing everywhere.
