And all at once, it leaves you breathless.
Being self-employed and working from home has been one of the best things I’ve ever decided to do. I love being able to work to my own timetable and be able to make the most of the week days. It’s so nice to be able to go shopping with barely anyone around. Or go out walking in the sunshine, knowing that most people are stuck inside looking at a computer. I can stay up late and sleep in (I’m a night owl, just as our business name suggests). My mental health has definitely appreciated it. I used to really dwell on the stupidest things from work (mostly just getting irritated at people’s inefficiency) and spent far too much time at home after work thinking about these things and getting more agitated and stressed by it.
Although it seems like a real walk in the park (sometimes literally), keeping yourself on track and motivated to do work is crazy difficult. Especially for me. My attention span is all over the place. Just ask Hook. I find myself having too many days where I just want to go out for a walk, watch a lot of tv shows and sleep. Or like right now, all I want to do is watch Creative Mornings talks all day long (I might be on to my 4th one of the day already haha). It’s going to be an on-going struggle trying to keep on track and get more disciplined.
How do you get motivated to do work? What steps have you taken to cut out any distractions?
