Today I joined the library for the first time in about 20 years. Please don't judge me. Most of the books or articles I read have something to do with business or music and so, while I did take out one fiction book, I also had to borrow a book called 'Your Guide to Working from home'. Even though the book was first published in 1997, chapter titles such as 'Discipline and Motivation, 'The Dining-room Syndrome' and 'Good habits, bad habits', sparked my interest. And, of course, the promise of being able to read something without the disruption of some pop-up advert or link distracting me.
The prospect of reading this book made me so excited because I am so blessed to work from home. I hope to eventually work from home completely, but I am counting my blessings.
Here are 10 of the many reasons I love working from home:
1. I am able to create a space that is welcoming for my students
2. I have the freedom to decorate the space as I choose
3. If there are any last minute cancellations, it is super easy to fill that time with household chores or admin.
4. Having the ability to work reasonable hours and put food on the table
5. No added rental costs
6. No travel time is wasted
7. I am fortunate enough to have a separate studio from our house, so people do not have to come into our private space
8. The studio is dedicated space for my work, which means there is no need for me to bring work 'home'
9. I don't need to lug heavy bags with books or instruments to work
10. I have a great big room, which is spacious and clean. What more could a person ask for?
I hope that you all have a musically inspiring week.
