At first, you are probably tempted to just wait until you are done sleeping in to finally get up and go to work. Then when you have an invitation to go somewhere with a friend in the middle of the day, your automatic response might be to go since you can always do your work at home sometime later on in the day. Before you know it, half of the day has gone by, and you have yet to get started on your work. That is not good, since it might cause you to stay up late just to get everything done on time—unless of course, you are a night owl, and actually prefer to work well into the wee hours of the night.
In those early days of working at home, I think the reason I switched up my working space so often was because I was not sure where the appropriate place to work was. When I worked at a brick and mortar job, I was simply told where I should sit and work. So when the decision was up to me, I got excited with all of the different possibilities, and had a hard time deciding.
As a freelancer who works from home, I sometimes feel like I should push myself to work nonstop. There is so much to do, and I won’t be getting paid until I do them. So why not push away the thought of having a break in the middle of the day? I could get so much more done if I don’t interrupt my work.
