Work from Home
By Josh Simons on Oct 28, 2007
As I sit here in my office in Burlington on a Sunday, I realize how much I depend on my laptop to let me work from anywhere at any time. And how much additional work I do because I have that capability.
I've been without a laptop for about two weeks. Its replacement should arrive in the next two days (I've tracked it from Shanghai to East Boston so far), but not quickly enough to avoid having to drive (40 miles each way) to the office to work on a presentation about code review practices that I'm giving tomorrow.
Aside from that one inconvenience, I've come to realize how much work I usually do in the mornings before driving to work and how much I do in the evenings afterward. It makes a big difference in my ability to keep up with everything that needs doing at work.
