In the past week, I have had no less than four conversations with people who, like me, work from home. While they appreciate the freedom of setting their own hours and following their own work patterns, there is a downside to "being your own boss", when you are also the only person with whom you're working. You can begin to feel isolated, especially if you are, by nature, a more social human. Once isolation sets in, the wonderful sense of focus you have with being able to do things in a way that suits your working style becomes a struggle. So the question I asked my Runes this week is how can we, as people who work at home alone, maintain our focus when we are feeling so isolated by the very position we have chosen?
