Working With Pants Optional

September 17, 2013 | By |

I wasn’t sure at first but I soon realized that working from home was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. How can you not love a commute of exactly 15 seconds or how about the ability to disconnect from work and hit up the gym for an hour (or two). I’ll even admit that I’ve gone for a few mid-day dips in the pool to cool off in the summer. But best of all, the attire extends beyond business casual to loungewear or in some cases – pants optional.

I suppose my biggest concern when starting from home was the constant temptation from the endless distractions. I doubted my ability to stay focused and disciplined but that was a definite non-issue. It does happen from time to time and that’s to be expected. The kitchen calls out to me or I realize that I haven’t watched that re-run of Saved By The Bell yet while eating my lunch. But in those moments I’m reminded of the times while working in an office where I’d spend thirty minutes listening to how a co-worker’s weekend was or a ninety minute foosball tournament. Ultimately, though, the need to meet deadlines and the constant problem solving are what kept me on track.

Another benefit to working from home is the fact that you save money. You know, that thing that brings happiness and stuff. I don’t mean saving money on the commute either because that’s obvious. I’m taking about lunches. I can’t even fathom how much money I wasted buying lunches at my previous company in downtown Vancouver. Granted that I was probably lazier than most when it came to making my own lunch but with a seventy-five minute commute ahead of me, the last thing on my mind was “what to eat…?”. On top of that making my own lunches at home has kick started a health binge that has been really satisfying and easy to maintain.
