Quiet Time

When you work in an office outside the home, you rarely have to factor in noise-level considerations in the course of the day. When you work from home, you're part of the home office family. You are part of a living organism, in a way. Every household has a rhythm, has times when the house is quiet, and times when it is bursting at the seams. You need to learn those rhythms and think about them as you make decisions about scheduling your day.

Typically, children are quiet in the morning. In the afternoons, everyone has cabin fever, or the kids are coming home from school and need to let loose with their energy for a little while. Therefore, phone calls become more thought-out. If you worked in a corporate environment, you probably never gave a thought to picking up the phone when it rang or returning calls at any particular time of the day. In a home office, phone calls may need to be returned in the family's downtime.
