Can’t do this. The moment I introduce work at home, I have a much harder time not thinking about work.

The thing about work at home, you need a separate room in the house with a closed door that feels like an office. I’m fortunate enough (thank you Seattle) to afford something in the outskirts that lets me have a room dedicated to work.

When I’m in the “work room” I work, otherwise I don’t. I think the brain associates different spaces with different modes of thinking.

I can’t get jack shit done at the office other than lots of meetings. To do real coding work, I have to remove people from my surrounding.
