For example, my son usually goes right for my office when he gets home in the afternoon, standing with me at my desk rattling on about his day oblivious that he might be interrupting. I do my best (and sometimes it’s really hard) to stop what I’m doing, turn to him and be present. How many more of those conversations will there be? I’ll take every one I can get.
Why I work remotely (hint: it has nothing to do with productivity).

When people hear about remote work, they are quick to label it as work “avoiding people;” what about family? Hours not spent in the office are hours spent at home. Working remotely is more than just choosing your own hours: it’s cherishing those moments with your family that you would’ve missed sitting in an office far away.
