It’s a Virtual World

I’m sitting on my sofa, with my notebook on my lap.   The TV is providing background noise, and when I search for a thought I look up, and out the french door to the beautiful, sunny day outside.   We’re living in a virtual world.

How many of us spend a day or more a week telecommuting?   I’ve been dong so for well over 15 years, and find that my days at home are far more productive than those in the office.  In the office people stop me in the hall to ask about my weekend, or how my son is doing in Track.   As I sit down to work I’m called into an impromptu meeting that turns into 90 minutes gone from the day with very little accomplished.   With impatience I realize that all these distractions will result in working at home tonight — just to get done the work I planned to do today.

The good news is that relationships are important — without the give and take nothing would ever really get done.  I realize this, and yet so much more solid work gets done when I can sit quietly, with the coffee cup beside me and the sun shinning outside my french door.
