Knowing yourself

I like working from home. I’ve been doing it for over a decade.  When I think about it, I’ve been doing it my whole life.  As a writer, I need the space, the quiet, the privacy to think and create.  These are preferences and habits that I developed as a child, when everything was about learning, when I was the definition of a good student.

Remember my friend Denise, from the DevNet Zone? Well, she’s an extrovert and enjoys coming into the office every day, so she can be around people.  I enjoy going to the office every once in a while, when I’m not super busy with immediate deliverables. I’m an introvert, and I prefer to work from home.

Regardless of your preference, there are times when those of us who worked hard and smart, and were lucky enough to become information workers, will be asked to work from home.  Can you think of a recent example of this happening? Extra time at home could translate into rediscovered or improved study habits.
