I know I do. Every working day of the week. I just didn’t have a name for it until I read this enlightening article titled Homing From Work in April’s issue of Self magazine.
Homing from work is essentially the opposite of working from home. Get it? Homing from work?? It’s when you do home or rather personal stuff DURING office hours. Like blogging, IM-ing, booking a holiday, reading and replying to personal e-mails, downloading mp3s of American Idol contestants – whatever it is that your employers would prefer you to do at home, not during office hours.
Homing from work is the reason why I only start tackling “work” work at 11.30am, despite clocking in at 9 and end up having to bring work home.
So if you are anything like me, you could benefit from taking a few minutes to read this brilliant and hilarious article. Just try to do it during you 15-minute break, k?
Anyway, I can’t wait to try the tips this Monday at the office. I’ll give it a try for a couple of day and keep you posted on my progress. Hopefully, I will be blogging about it AT home and not during work 🙂
