Working remotely! YES or NO?

So, today I decided to ponder about working remotely!
Its' pros and cons, whether I really like it or no and is it even productive.

First of all, I noticed that on the days when I visit the office I am so drained out by the end of the day that I don't want to do anything anymore. This is related to a 2h daily commute that I need to tackle in order to get to the office and to the fact that working in the office quite honestly just takes more out of you due to always chatting with someone, joggling this and that and quite simple more things to do then just tasks at hand.
When I work at home I can easily do some extra work at 8PM, 9PM sometimes even 10PM. No problem. I am not tired from driving for 2h and working at home is quite simple more calming.

Secondly, I have to say(even though this is very specific from person to person) that my personal productivity level is better at home. And here I mean not the hours spent on work, no-no, I mean the overall amount of work done within a day! Obviously if you lack focus and can't sit for a while at a computer thinking about how to solve an unsolvable problem, maybe, this is not the way for you!

To conclude, I would like to say, that I really like working remotely!
My productivity is better. I can work more. I am not tired by the end of the day.

Did you try working remotely? Maybe with a friend?
How did it go? And if you haven't, why?

Tell me about your experience...

I also like that our team more and more works remotely. It makes things more organized and more clear. Everything should pass through communications channel and information leaves clean footprints which help share information between all members of the team šŸš€

Yes, definitely! So many pros at remote work from home: comfortable atmosphere, saving money on driving to office, more free time for hobbies etc. But for me it was smth like challenge on the beggining...I needed to learn how to work much more productive and not be distracted while performing tasks. I'm found a way to control myself: started to use a time management application - tmetric.com/.

That is an awesome point, thank you for sharing!
I posted this post quite before the pandemic hit us so hard, so I have to say that I am thankful that my position allows me to work from home!
