So this may sound a little crazy…but while it is often difficult to be productive in my actual physical office because of all the socializing that goes on (which I absolutely love and cannot live without).. When I work from home, I am almost sharing virtual office space with some people. As in DMing, Slacking or FB PMing while I work.
Sounds like I am defeating the whole purpose of working from home, right?
Actually no. I have a need for socialization. I just need it not to interfere with certain work at certain times. With virtual open office space, no one will think it’s rude if u don’t look them in the eye as you finish that paragraph. No one will get mad at you for responding after 15 or 30 mins. It’s a semi-synchronous heaven.
Thanks Rebecca, Autumm and Alex for being part of my virtual semi-synchronous open office space this week 😉 You helped me feel less lonely while being productive 🙂
