Why I need to work from anywhere: Banks, Physical Therapy, Doctor’s Appointments and Everyone Else You Have to Work Around

Have you ever noticed that you always have to go out of your way to make it to the bank on time? You’re always the one who has to leave in the middle of your day to visit the doctor? It’s like everyone in financial and health services has decided their hours are going to be 9-5 only (with a 2 hour break in the middle, of course).
Well, when you are able to work from anywhere, you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to make your appointments. This week alone, I’ve:
  • Taken 3 conference calls on my way to the physical therapist (tendonitis, long story)
  • Worked a total of 6 hours at coffee shops while waiting for traffic to die down (3 virtual meetings took place during this time)
  • Presented a web conference in my car on my mobile phone (while parked on the street and plugged into the car)

While I know this won’t happen all the time, this week has been a shining example of how today’s technology provides us the ability to work around everyone else’s strict 9-5 schedules, from anywhere. And for me, going to the doctor in the middle of the day doesn’t feel like so much of an inconvenience anymore.
