When working requires a commute, people often want to just relax. Often, you may not have the energy, which is understandable after a long day of work. It’s difficult to pursue those personal goals when you find it difficult to stay motivated at home. You’re not nearly as productive as you would be if you were at work or at school.
And if you enjoy the luxury of working from home, it can still be difficult to pursue your goals because you realize there may be many things to take care of at home, especially if you have kids. You can still be efficient with tools, like a task list, and accomplish what you need to do.
