Amidst all the recent laments that we are too tethered to our technology, I have a confession to make: I would pretty much fall apart without it. I've stumbled on a half dozen tools and apps that have been absolute game-changers and have made it possible to juggle the ten thousand balls I have in the air.
No, I'm not saying you should wear a pant suit while working from your living room. But please - change out of your pajamas, will you? For me, just knowing that I look decent makes me much more likely to take my work day seriously. Unless I have a meeting where I have to look professional, my favorite wardrobe for working from home is exercise clothes. They're comfortable, presentable, and automatically give the feeling of accomplishment. It's also a motivating factor to exercise, but we'll save that for another post.
