Otherwise, I knew that I’d be distracted with doing chores or other household things.
It’s wonderful to be able to work from the loft in the central air conditioning of my home. It was so sad all the suffering and upheaval that came with the pandemic. But that global health crisis had a positive impact on my life. Like several companies, mine shut down the office with the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation & A/C and sent us all home. My colleagues were put off by this situation but I was secretly so satisfied. While I care about the work that I do, I don’t like the environment at the office. Don’t get me wrong, the office is well appointed and has great commercial Heating, Ventilation & A/C. So there is never a comfort issue as much as the environment of the office is uncomfortable from an odd perspective. All the politics and drama of the office get to be too much for me. I like to stay away whenever possible. Plus, I was always being interrupted by a litany of things when trying to do my work. What I do takes concentration and focus. So working inside that commercial Heating, Ventilation and A/C of the office was taxing with all the interruptions. That all changed as soon as I got loft and got to work. The first thing I did was create a designated area for me to work from. Otherwise, I knew that I’d be distracted with doing chores or other household things. I cleared out the guest room and turned it into my full time office. This was the best thing I could have done. From day one, I was totally in the zone when it came to my work.
