Part of doing your own thing is figuring out where to work. This month, I’ve had to start sharing my workspace with my partner, and it’s forced me to really consider how I actually handle working from home. Whether you have a “home office” or a coffee table in the living room, the hardest part of the whole process is actually getting the work done, and without going crazy.
Case in point, since writing the last paragraph I’ve sent two emails, g-chatted a friend, and “hopped on a call.” So how do you achieve balance when you’re in the same space all day and night? I’m still not 100% sure, but I do have a few tips. –Adam J. Kurtz
