Today I been up since after 07:00 and started working at around 07:30 at my desk at home. I am still on sick leave because of the operation yesterday.
It has just gone 09:20 and I now only feel like breakfast, a cigarette and a shower. All things I would have needed to do two hours ago already in order to get to work on time.
I always thought that I would be unproductive if I were to work from home; seems I am even more so productive than ever. No ringing telephone, no pestering colleagues, no stressed out academics asking for unnecessary things to do, no student queries etc.
Think about the time we spend preparing for the office in the morning, in the case of a female, this could be up to an hour. Then if you traveling from say northern suburbs into Cape Town, you will be in traffic for at least 40 minutes. That is wasted time that could be used for productivity? Now double that time because you still have to get home in the evening.
I could do this everyday - Life is great, but just for today that is. Tomorrow it is back to the hell hole…
