Now that all three of my kids are in school, I consider myself working full time. Unfortunately, I’m working from home and for myself, which means that people still have this idea that I’m always available. But, that’s not the case.
I think all of my years in corporate America has my mind conditioned to where I’m more productive and where I’m not. I’ve tried writing at the dining room table, and I’ve tried sitting on my couch and working, but I have always worked best at my desk. That’s one of the reasons that makes it hard to work when it’s just me and the boys. My office is removed from the rooms where they’re more likely to play, and I’m not very comfortable with that.
