I hate WFH, but if you have to do it, set clear boundaries between work and life (separate locations works best), and overcommunicate with management/leadership... the default assumption for WFH seems to be that I’m just derping around if I’m not constantly letting them know what I’m doing. I’m not upset, I swear.

like

Have a separate office for sure. Actually work when you are working from home. Be even more responsive and available than you normally are. Never give anyone cause to wonder if you're around or working. Be in the office enough to establish good rapport with your teams. Go out of your way to help people out so they know you have their back even if you're not visible in the office all the time. Do great work and you'll get to keep doing it.

I love WFH - been doing it for years -

like

Establish a defined work space that ideally doesn't blend into the rest of your home. Helps with boundaries. Set up desk with monitor, keyboard, good headset etc. Take quick breaks to unwind and simultaneously get crap done (laundry, dishes, change linens, prep dinner). If schedule allows, give yourself workout time and definitely get fresh air. I watch the news with my coffee when I first get up but that's it for TV until I log off. For me it's too distracting. Personally I need to have discipline and structure or I won't accomplish much.

Make an effort to actually have a designated office, or at least a desk with 2 monitors. Helps me stay focused. A little Netflix running in the background always helps. Also take a break to go to the gym during lunch or during slow time!

WFH is amazing. No distractions and you don’t get face to face with those douchey coworkers 🙌🏼🙌🏼

Bar the lack of human interaction, WFH is great. I find I have more time to live a clean life and I think that helps me to be more efficient at work.

Hate WFM, it's so isolating... IMing your team members is just not the same as face to face conversations, but budget doesn't allow for travel :/
