One of the challenges of working from a home office is overcoming procrastination periods or lack of motivation. This challenge often arises upon returning to the office after attending an off-site networking event. Faced without immediate demands for your time by people or departments such as in external office environments, it can be it can be hard to retrack.
Furthermore, an external office has fewer non-work distractions, and being surrounded by people who are in work mode or rely on you to help them do their job, makes retracking much easier.
This truth led me to consider external office work environment situations when re-tracking can also be a challenge. For instance, returning to work after a long vacation to face a large, unpleasant or complex project. Add to that, the tendency to want perfection on any project invites procrastination, and if not checked, it can lead to a debilitating pace.
