When I was done with school, I accepted a 9 to five task in an office because that was what was expected of me.
- But everyday, I showed up to work those hours and got one hour lunch break at noon, then clocked out at exactly five.
This lasted a complete year before I was over it. I dreaded going to my job, not because I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing, however because there was nothing new plus it didn’t fit well with my own sort of routine. Around half the time, I was just finding busy work plus finding ways to pass time due to I was already done with our work. That’s the thing about really working in an office just like this. Even if you have nothing to do, you’re forced to sit there plus look busy until you are clocked out. After deciding this office job wasn’t for me, I accepted a job that allowed myself and others to task from the house. It’s been ideal, plus I’m so ecstatic I made the change over. One thing I didn’t expect to like so much about finally working from home was the control over the thermostat of our office environment. I keep the thermostat control at exactly 72 degrees while working, because it’s hot enough to stay in the zone however not hot enough to fall asleep. I didn’t notice how much heating and air has an effect on my own task performance. I am way more productive when I’m comfortable with the temperature.
