Three little letters that I never knew the meaning of until I made the transition to enterprise. Simply put, WFH = Work From Home. During my Geek Squad days I had always craved the ability to get more work done outside of work. I’m not sure what it is about me, but I love staying busy. I can keep working until my heart is content! It’s so amazing! I consider this to be one of the biggest perks of where I work now. I’m fully equipped with a work laptop, a mobile phone that keeps me organized about my day, and the ability to access internal resources all from practically anywhere!
Here’s a recent happening…(incoming side story).
I was driving down the freeway one day on my way to work. The road that I drive on every morning is currently under construction. They’re pretty much expanding the road and re-applying asphalt. That being said, driving down that road has caused my car to get a whole bunch of dings as loose asphalt jumps up and catches my car. I didn’t think much of it until I heard a big thud across the roof of my car. I swore it sounded like a rock the size of a baseball came and smacked my car’s sunroof. Low and behold, I open up my sun roof slider just to take a peak and my sunroof is completely shattered. It wasn’t until I parked at work that I got to take a better look at the mayhem…
Poor car. Anyways, what I’m getting at is, I was able to freely schedule time to get this repaired AND get work done. The repair shop I went to had wireless and that’s pretty much all I needed to get work done. So instead of losing out on maybe 4 hours of my work day…I only lost maybe 40 mins (the commute it took me to get to work from the repair shop). I must say, having the ability to WFH or in my case, work from anywhere that gives me internetz is pretty awesome!
I suppose for some this can be a drag as work will never leave you, but I’m not too concerned with that. I imagine one day I will be, but until that day comes….
“Do work son”.
