Recently, I’ve been dealing with some personal matters that have taken up more time in my professional life.
It's weeks like these that make me appreciative of the fact that I work remote.
Knowing I can flex my work schedule -- to a certain degree -- in order to best fit what's happening in my life is something I don't take for granted.
I'll be honest though, I was hesitant and nervous when IMPACT first approached me about working remotely full time. I loved working in an office, brainstorming with colleagues and having friends to grab lunch or happy hour with.
What would it be like to be alone, in my home, every day? Could I be productive? Would I be lonely? Would I get bored or lose my creativity?
A recent study shows there's been a 115% increase in people telecommuting in the US over the last 10 years.
Was I ready to become part of that statistic?
In time, I weighed my odds and decided to take the risk and see if remote work was a fit for me -- And boy, am I glad I did.
Overall, I love working remotely, and the flexibility and freedom of my schedule is just one reason why. However, there are plenty of days where I just don't feel "on."
With no one around me to hold me accountable in doing my job, I realize now it is more important than ever to find ways to reignite my creative spark and ensure I'm able to deliver quality work.
Join Marcella and I as we discuss how we combat the remote working blues to keep that creative spark alive in this week's episode.
