At first glance, telecommuting looks like the best thing ever. You don’t have to wake up as early, can dress in comfy clothes, and your commute is only as long as it takes to get to your home office. That’s all well and good, but telecommuting isn’t a job, it’s an aspect of a job. It could be a big mistake to focus more on the “telecommuting” part than the actual “job” part.
Telecommuting can be a big adjustment for people who never worked from home before. That isn’t to say anyone should expect a negative situation when they make the move to work from home, only that it requires balance, dedication, and focus.
