Lots of men and women have been forced into remote tasks over the past several months, however I’ve been working a remote job for about five years now.
I was sick of being crammed in an overheated and musty office workspace each day for years on end.
At the time I was doing data entry for a large company that handles viewership statistics for the TV conglomerates. We’d figure out that these viewing diaries sent in by random citizens and then code the information before it is sent to the companies that own the cable stations and fund the programs were shown on them. There was no reason I couldn’t do a similar job at our laptop in my brand new kitchen, but thus I casted out a wide net and started looking for anything related to data entry offering remote employment. I found our brand new company within a few weeks and now I’m much happier. Despite the fact that I still task diligently throughout the day, I have gotten a little lazier since I started this job. It’s funny when I believe about how I synced our central Heating & Air Conditioning unit to my laptop with the smart control unit just so I could adjust the temperature in our house separate from getting up from our desk. The entire control unit is just outside the doorway to our office as well, which makes our setup sound even more ridiculous. As long as I’m still working hard and meeting our deadlines, I don’t see a legitimate reason to scoff at not wanting to get up for an hour just to lower the temperature on the control unit a tiny bit. The best part of it all, the smart control unit gives myself and others all sorts of stats on cooling times in our system, humidity levels, and outdoor weather conditions to name just a few.
