Is Working At Home Better Than Not?

Updated on July 31, 2013

Be Your Own Boss

Working At Home


If you could work from home would you? Think about it. You could water the grass anytime you wanted. You could take a break, have a smoke, watch a program, play some games, whatever you wanted to do as long as you got your job done.

Doesn't that sound perfect? It does to me. If there is anyway you can do all, or at least some of your work from home it is possible you could be more peaceful. You could feel better about your whole existence.

Some jobs cannot be done from home though. That's the problem. If you try to ask your boss or whomever it concerns, to do some work at home maybe they'll let you. If not consider a different line of work that can be done at home.

I mean, if you're really bothered by what it is that you're doing for a living why isn't there a chance for change. Why can't you think of something to do from home. Just look online.

If you think that working from home means you won't have relationships with co-workers that's not entirely true. You can belong to a group that concerns your work. You could go out to lunch with some of these people. Have an after work meeting. You can do whatever you want.

To call your own shots, as they say. It's great!. You don't have to worry when a crisis happens, you know you'll be able to take care of it because you are depending on yourself. Or, if you can, call someone in to fix the computer if it crashes.

There are so many things you can do from home. You can be a consumer relief person, a writer, a consultant, a home health adviser, a data entry person, a salesman, a daycare specialist, an artist, or whatever you can think of to make money.

What really matters here is whether or not you want to continue to go into the office every day or not. If you don't, think about alternatives so you'll be able to be happy with your life..


Would you rather work at home if you could?

      I've worked from home now for over two years and I have no regrets at all...in fact, I love it. After forty years of having to be at a job site, it's nice to have the freedom and serenity that working at home provides. Thank goodness I decided to be a freelance writer. :) By the way, I like that you started this hub with a question. Very effective.

      It's doing what I want when I want that appeals to me; but crises can happen with projects at home just as they do in the office. Still, I'd say that working at home is so much better.
