James Chartrand - Men with Pens

While I agree that working from home is advantageous and it isn't isolating, those who choose a home office need to pay attention to a few important tips. Remember that working from home means home life and work life becomes one. You are at the "office", literally, 24/7.

Have an office. A real office. With a door. Not only to shut out distractions, but to shut of the day when it's done. A computer in a visible area just makes it way too easy to answer an email - next thing you know, you've been there an hour.

Get up and get out. Isolation is often self-created. You can work from home and yes, you'll be alone, so if you need to see real people, put in your hours, use the social media suggested in the post and then go outside where the real people are.

Is it worth it to work from home?

With the right strategies in place, you bet it is.

I think all of your points are good, and it truly is just an excuse - because nowadays you can work from anywhere! You can head to Starbucks and work, or the library, or the park. As long as you've got access to the Internet (on your mobile phone, your laptop, or any desktop) you can have access to all of your uploaded documents and files on your webtop! And that means you can socialize AND get your work done too. Not to mention that your files are backed up in case your computer crashes, and you've got single login access to a good amount of SaaS programs.
