I have found an effective solution to any motivation problems I may have from working at home. It is so easy to over-work when you are your own boss so I now have a man outside my window who tells me when to stop by flashing his sign at me.
Similarly, when I am in danger of turning into a couch-potato, he turns his little sign round and gives me the single to go.
I think everyone should have a man like this:
Pity they are digging up the road outside my house too but, when they have finished, I might ask the man with the sign to stay on.
Hi,WolfieWolfgang. It is a good idea! And how about modifying them to a kind of mobile to hang down from eaves…Ops, it will fluctuate our motivation too much though.
