We all know that working from home without a boss breathing down your neck is great, but it takes intense discipline to remain focused and get through that mountain of work ahead of you.

Phyllis Smith's insight:

If you work from a home office - make sure you get dressed each morning  so that you feel businesslike instead of wearing pajamas and slippers.  Definitely a positive  attitude changer when you're dressed for business.
