Start by recognizing that everyone is in the same situation as you, so they're going to be very understanding of that need. The big fear when folks who typically WFH talk to people in the office is that they're afraid the WFH environment will be considered undisciplined and soft. But now, everyone knows that sometimes you need to walk to the fridge of a snack and it's OK to say "I need to run to the gym for 30 minutes" even if the gym is just going downstairs to the basement.

Day by day I’m just getting less and less interested in my job. I want to do something that excites me and makes me feel like I’m providing value to the company. Everything else about the job is splendid as I’m still WFH (2 years now) and it’s really flexible but I don’t want to just sit all day and work on fixing data problems. I want to make the switch to a new company but I feel like I have to finish a project that’s nowhere near done. Am feeling guilty? Thoughts?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
