If the HR at your company declared the much-required advice to work from home because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is quite justified and you are fortunate. You should consider yourself lucky. But here is an interesting twist. It is not what it feels like to be. It might sound comforting but hey people! Do not relax yet! Let me give you a trivia. The expectations and reality are galaxy apart. While you work with the comfort of home, the first distraction is getting all laidback and lazy. It will need a lot of discipline and time management more than ever. While you have access to Netflix, refrigerator and your bed, it will require a lot of will power to block yourself out of that zone to give seamless outcome to your spreadsheet updates.
Now you might think that you will get more work done as there will be no peers to gossip with, no boss coming to check on you every now and then, no sitting upright on that uncomfortable office chair, etc. Reality slap: telecommuting is hard and stressful.
Netizens have flooded social media with expectations vs. the reality of what it feels like to work from home. before you adapt to your new work culture, you should go through these memes to check the reality of what you are going to get yourself into.
