Work and Home Are Independent Entitites, Define Your Work — 6 Comments

  1. It is so very hard when the children are young. That is why I started consulting and writing because that type of work I could do at night after everyone was asleep. Maybe sometimes defining things means workingn around our real families in our real lives.

  2. I definitely need to work on this. Part of the problem is my kids are so young that I’m often juggling both family and work simultaneously– unless I hire a babysitter, that’s the way it has to be until they go to school. And I could hire a babysitter, but… I committed to staying home with them. Such a conundrum! Can’t I pretend I can just handle both at the same time? (haha, no, I can’t!)

  3. I wrote this because my husband and I as well as a few friends are all struggling with this issue.

  4. LIke you said it is a simple solution, but many of my work from home friends and I are struggling to deal with this issue.

  5. This is such an important point! When I stopped doing laundry, dishes, and other things around the house on my ‘work days,’ my work was so much more productive. It sounds obvious but it took me a while to get to a point where I could separate the two.
