The biggest decision you can take is to allot X number of hours per day to your company and no more. Draw your boundary.Beach wrote: ↑Fri Jan 22, 2021 1:20 pm I appreciate the wisdom on this forum, not really sure if its appropriate to bring it up but here it is.
I have been working from home since March because of the pandemic and it is continually getting harder and more time consuming. I feel that management is loading us with more tasks and more work than ever before. Is this the same for anybody else working from home who used to work in the office? I am finding it more and more difficult to keep working in this environment but didn't know if this is normal or what. I like the idea of working from home, but the blur between working and home life is getting fuzzier.
Yes, there will be the day or two when you will need to work late. Take it off the next day so folks around you understand cause and effect.
Of course, if you're in a rat race company where you might stand out like a sore thumb, this will be an issue. On the other hand, if you work at a place where extra effort is not rewarded and less effort isn't punished either, it is quite easy to do this!
