Man, I now totally have the set up since it really made more sense for me to go with remote working than go back to the zone controlled HVAC of the office downtown.
And here I was doing all the freaking out when they told us to go home to work in our own air conditioning.
I just didn’t think I be very good at working from home. Self discipline was never one of my strong suits. The office helped me when it came to structure. And having colleagues was important to me as well. But I also found that once I left that zone controlled HVAC in that office, there were some anchors in that office as well. It was really constant interruption. I remember trying to find just a quiet spot in a corner with air conditioning because to much was going on around my desk and the office. So once I started working at what I do from home and then only talking with colleagues via text, email or at designated times, less interruptions. Like much, much less. That led me to put really nice shed in my backyard and have it wired up. Then I called the HVAC company and had them install a ductless heat pump. Now, I’m crushing it at work and have so much more time for the rest of my life. Having control of my schedule at work has freed me up so much in my personal life that it’s worth not seeing my colleagues everyday. Life is good in my little office with the ductless heat pump and view of my backyard.
