Work From Home With Me | 75 min | Pomodoro | Sunday

on

Everyone I Speak to These Days Be Like – Working from home is making me feel obligated to check emails and respond 24/7 instead of just during working hours. I’m exhausted and having a hard time keeping up with the pace of back-to-back conference calls, no time to get any actual work done, not to mention all the distractions from my family.

Take a deep breath. You are not alone. The truth is we are living in a world with too many meetings, too many emails, and no time to get through them all. Everyone reading this feels your pain. My advice will sound simple, but you can do it. You must take control of your calendar. Stop feeling guilty and stop apologising about having conflicts.  Here work with me to stay focused.

  1. This is so true, wfh has ripped apart the balance and can see emails flying around at 9pm which creates such an unhealthy and unhelpful culture. Establishing boundaries is such a key thing

      1. In some ways yes, but I also prefer just to be on call sometimes as the videos can bring in a bit of fatigue as well

    I think there are pros and cons to working from home. I do it and happen to like it very much. But I am not bombarded with emails or late night calls.
