ABSTRACT
This section presents an article about working at home. The author observed that nobody telephoned him between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm, presumably to avoid interrupting his lunch. Therefore, he did not have his telephone switched on during those times. The productivity level reached on day one was no fluke. He was frequently able to finish work in half the time it took him in the office. Sometimes, he would work later into the evening to complete the following day's tasks to make time for himself the next day. The reaction when he went into the office was mixed. The author loves working from home but he does miss the social interaction and office chit-chat that made him so much less productive in his office-based days. He thinks he knows how to make best use of his time at home but he must make more of an effort to speak to colleagues on a regular basis.
