Working from home can be distracting

Today I finally got access to the work VPN which means that now, I can access my work email and documents from home.

Now that could be a good thing – I’ve got a couple of reports to write and I wanted to do that in the relative peace of home – but instead I’ve been distracted by my email. In fact I’m just as busy doing the busy-work of the hour to hour crap running a network at home as I am at work.

Plus now that I can access my emails all the time… I am!

So now work impinges on home and home is impinging on work.

This is nuts. I can see that I’m going to have to work out some limits.

Do you work from home? How do you manage it.

Do you have to set up a separate home office? Set aside “work” time?

Coz now that I have it, I don’t want to give up my VPN access. 🙂
