Working from home becomes popular due to the coronavirus outbreak. For me, It’s not a new thing honestly. I have been working from home for 11 years. My journey was started in 2009. I never imagine if a decade later the condition becomes like this.
Although working from home seems easy, but in reality it’s complicated. We have to face and deal with these challenges:
1. About managing the time wisely
We have to divide our time for many activities, especially if we are a mom too. In the same time, we have to do many things. So, managing time during we are at home is a must. It’s not simple.
2. About dealing with our perfectionist side
Are we perfectionist person? If the answer is yes, we have to be careful because we can get stressed easily. In fact, it doesn’t matter if our plan can’t be real. We are not a loser just because we can do all things at the same time.
3. About feeling alone
Our team is far away. We connect with them just only by the social media. It makes us feel lonely. It seems like sometimes we are a lone ranger. 🙂
4. About people will judge you as a jobless no matter how busy you are
Working from home makes us so busy. We have to take care of all things. But, because we are staying at home all day long, so people judge us easily as a jobless. They don’t care about our condition. All the know is we are almost at home from morning to night, everyday. And for them it means… we are unemployment. So sad. 🙂
5. About being difficult to focus
If there are so many challenges of working from home, then why people including me still like working from home? I will explain on the next post. 🙂
