Do You Have the Right Work at Home Attitude?

Jul 21, 2008
I've known people who were thinking about quitting there "real world" job and wanting to start their own online business on their home computers say, "I just can't wait to work just when I feel like working!" Or, I really can't wait until I am my own boss" Or even, It will be great when I don't have to punch a time clock."

While it is true. You really can work your own set hours when you have a work at home job and not have to punch a time clock, the working only when you feel like it part is not a very good idea. I guess though how often you felt like working, and how long the feeling lasted I think would be the big question.

Here are some things you should think about when considering working at home:

1. When working out in the brick-and-mortar world you most likely worked at least 8 hours a day and 5 days a week, if you had a full time job. When you work from home you may work 10 hours a day or more in the beginning, and maybe even more than 5 days a week. If you expect to work less, you should keep your day job and work part time at home until your home business get's rolling and can supply you with good income.

2. While you really can set your own hours, it is a very good idea to set your work hours just as if you were punching a clock. Then you must have the discipline to really work those hours every day you set to work.

3. When you worked for a boss, you probably got a paycheck whether your actually accomplished anything or not. Working from a computer at home, if you don't produce, you don't get paid. It's just that simple.

So you see working from home is not like a summer vacation from high school. You really can't just do what you feel like when you feel like. That is, of course what you want to do is sit in front of your computer and work.

After, your business gets rolling you will then be able to cut back your hours and have the freedom you longed for when you quit your day job. And, believe me it is worth all the long hours you put in getting to the top of the hill and start riding the fun wave on the other side.
