For Better Or Worse
I live in a kibbutz in Israel. From the age of 23 I walked to work. I got up with the sun, dressed and walked to wherever it was I worked at the time, welding shop, handyman, swimming pool, construction, and turkeys.
One day, after a long process, things changed. I had to find my own work, rather than be assigned a place. I chose to become a translator and began working in my apartment. Not even a five minute walk, just sit down at the computer and get busy. I can go outside and find someone to talk to if I want, I can take days off and pursue other interests without explanations. I don't have to get dressed, or wear something different every day.
It's not for everybody, but anyone who can motivate himself is welcome to try working from home.
