Day Two of Georgia Telework Week: Claiming Better Work-Life Balance

It’s the second day of my Georgia Telework Week challenge. Today, I did something I haven’t done in 10 years – I stole 45 glorious minutes for myself before kicking off my workday. Instead of heading into Atlanta’s bumper-to-bumper traffic, I got my kids on the school bus, took my dog for a walk and still connected to work 45 minutes earlier than normal. What a great start to a productive day!

It’s only day two of my telecommuting experience, and I feel revived – rejuvenated. Maintaining work-life balance is difficult for all of us with mobile technology keeping us connected anytime, anywhere. Today, however, teleworking gave me 45 minutes to myself – something I haven’t had since I had my first child. I’ve also taken three virtual GlobalMeet and iMeet meetings, completed two projects and started three more. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!

Are you a teleworker? How’s your work-life balance? Questions on how your company can create a flex or teleworker strategy? I’ll be connected all day.
