Doing Work From Home Wrong
I’ve been working from home now for over two years. I like working from home. It’s nice. I’ve recently determined that I’m doing this whole thing wrong.
I think when I first started working from home, my thoughts about it where along the lines of “I need a home office.” In creating this “office” for myself, I modelled what I had at home on what I had at work. A chair. A desk. Blah blah blah. You know the setup.
I ran across this post on Twitter by accident, and I think this lady has the right idea.

She’s got everything going on that she needs to have to get her work done, but she’s doing it in a way that you’re not going to find in the typical office building. Sitting here in my office chair at my desk, I feel kind of silly that I’ve spent so much time in a “setting” that I don’t actually enjoy.
Maybe there are people out there that love sitting at a desk in an office chair, but I am not one of those people. It feels official and stuff, but it also gets really uncomfortable over the course of the day.
I think I need to rethink how I’m doing this. I need to rethink how my “office” is configured. I think I need less office, more comfort.
