Work From Home Productively

Pros

Nearly one-quarter of all Americans do their jobs at least some of the time from home, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. And what’s not to like about working at home?
You can shuffle to your computer in pajamas (assuming you’re not scheduled for a video conference), coffee cup in hand, to start the morning. Save on travel and lunch costs, and count the money you save on tax deductions for your home office if it’s used exclusively for work.

Cons

Working from home isn’t all roses. Loved ones and friends may think you’re available 24/7 when you’re working just as hard at home as in the office. If you’re bucking for a promotion, out of sight could mean out of mind. You don’t have associates in the next cubicle to ask for advice or a boss to notice the extra hours you work.
So, if you’re considering working from home, understand its pros and cons before making a decision.
