Telecommuting rocks - but there are a couple things...
I love telecommuting. Seriously, it's the best thing that has ever happened to me careerwise. I've never been happier, more productive, and did I mention happier? However, there are a couple things that can get to me.
The first thing is telecommuter's guilt. It's that part of you that says, "Hey, I'm not miserable enough. Not tired enough." And this guilt leads to the Sunday afternoon guilt that says, "I could do some work. I'm just relaxing. Beer - work - beer -work - what should I chose?
What's interesting about this is that I've never been one of those workaholic types. When I worked in a traditional office, I was like Fred Flintstone - the whistle blew and I went running for the door.
