5 Reasons I Get Nothing Done When Working From Home

Most days I operate out a local co-working space, but sometimes I’ll work from home. I’ve noticed I’m less productive when I’m working from home, here are the five most common reasons why:

Reason # 1 - Kittens!


My girlfriend and I recently adopted these two adorable kittens - Mango (girl) and Monkey (boy). In this picture Mango is serving as Monkey’s pillow, she looks pretty happy about the situation though.

Unsurprisingly, they’re quite a handful, and can be very distracting.

Reason # 2 - There’s always somethi- No Monkey! Don’t drink my tea!


They’re playful enough already, I really don’t want to introduce caffeine into the equation. Also, how awesome is my mug?

Reason # 3 - Hey! I only got up for a minute


Can I have my chair back please Mango?

Thanks for that contribution Mango.

Reason # 5 - Suspicious noises from another room


Wait, how did you guys turn the TV on? I’m not even mad, I’m impressed.

Well, that was a silly post, but then it is Friday. Normal service will resume next week.
