There are many disadvantages to working at home. But one of the many advantages is the luxury of bringing work wherever I go. In our most recent trip abroad, my husband and I opted to rent a pocket wi-fi to ensure that we have Internet connection all the time for work, rather than rely on the wi-fi that would be provided by our accommodation or on the wi-fi that are free in coffee shops. In this post, I will show you a comparison of the travel wi-fi that can be rented out from Cebu. Read on if you’re interested.
Working from home has numerous advantages, and disadvantages. While I can go on and on enumerating the many good things about working from home (no daily commutes!), I can also list several disadvantages. But, being the positivist that I am when it comes to work, I try to turn these disadvantages into opportunities. One of these disadvantages are the greater tendency to procrastinate and to just laze around and do nothing, effectively becoming unproductive. Also, the technical part of working from home also becomes a disadvantage at times because you do not have a tech guy (who’s an expert on computers and technical stuff) to call and fix a problem immediately. Another disadvantage also stems from our often poor Internet connection, busting our productivity bubbles in a snap. In this post, I’m going to share with you my top three productivity killers and how I deal with them.
When my boyfriend and I went home to Siquijor last November, on the way back to Cebu, we took a fastcraft to Dumaguete and from there decided to take a midnight boat to Cebu. When I’m too hungry to think of where to eat in Dumaguete, I don’t go adventurous and check out the newest places. Instead, I walk a hundred meters or so from the port to Jo’s Chicken Inato and order a piece of chicken and rice (and pancit canton if I’m not on a budget or in a hurry). And that’s exactly what my boyfriend and I did. After our dinner at Jo’s, we walked around the downtown of Dumaguete, checked out their plaza (and it was filled with people that day being a Sunday and a few days before their fiesta), and tried to find somewhere we can sit and have coffee and sweet treats. We noticed a few new coffee shops in the area but finally settled with Poppy at the Siliman Portal because it was deserted.
