Home Work

There are advantages and disadvantages of working at home.

One of the advantages is that I get to spend time with my boys...which is also a disadvantage. I have my own start time (good and bad, depending on my mood), can stop when I want, do what I want.

But in order to be a successful home-worker, you have to have a degree of self-discipline, you have to set targets. As a web-designer you set a target number of webpages, as a writer, a certain number of words, chapters, a whole short story or article.

For the boys, it's certain amount of 'education' or reading.

The biggest disadvantage, to my mind, is trying to meet my own targets. That could a lack of discipline or just depression seeping back into my mind for weeks at a time.
