Smart Passive Income #220 – You are Responsible for Everything

Pat revisits the topic “working from home”. Where are the problems and challenges to overcome?

  • You are responsible for all decisions … if you have a problem, look for people who know more than you in that particular subject and ask them …
  • You are responsible for your schedule … therefore, you have to create one, and separate your workspace (and computer) from your non-work-related life …
  • You are responsible for getting work done … get dressed (no pajamas!), schedule important meetings early in the morning, and don’t forget to exercise in between …
  • You are sooooo alone … luckily there are Facebook and Twitter where all our friends live and thrive … but don’t forget to work in between …
  • You are responsible for all the rest … there is no employer who thinks for you, and no one who provides benefits out of their golden hearts … (I wonder why employers provide benefits, they are our benefactors!) … like before do it yourself … get an health insurance and a retirement plan, plan your vacations … stay healthy …
