Part IV: Self-Management > Personalities, Preferences and Habits

Chapter 20. Personalities, Preferences and Habits

Working from home poses different self-management skills compared to those of the corporate office. Many skills are wrapped up with personalities, preferences or habits.

  • Cindy often discovers large chunks of time disappear from her day while she’s talking on the phone.

  • Hal’s 10-minute break to reglue his model plane turns into an hour’s diversion to assemble another part.

  • Amy’s walk break around the block ends in a four-mile jaunt to Yumi Yogurt for a treat.

  • Charlie’s trip to the kitchen for coffee also includes donuts leaping from the box—onto his waistline.

  • Paula’s quick thank-you note ends in an hour’s effort to rewrite it five times to get it perfect.

  • Edward struggles with the shift from a highrise executive office to a 10’×10’ back bedroom.

  • Ina is happy spending most days by herself but feels disconnected with what’s going on in her profession and with her few friends.
