Productive Symphony

How to not lose your s#!t when you and your partner both work from home.

Working from home with a partner is like a synchronized dance. Timing and coordination are key.

Last year, I waltzed between different places around the world. This meant I had to improvise my workstation. I often logged in from random spots around the house.

Like the kitchen table or the couch.

When I finally settled in one place, I decided to invest in a proper office setup.

Now I had a desk, a second monitor, and my own chair. I hoped this would give me a performance boost and relief from back pain.

But my partner and I discovered that our duet wasn't always in sync. When we both had calls at the same time, I had to tango my way back to the kitchen table. đź« 

I've learned to enjoy the stage change though.

Plus, I appreciate the proximity to snacks without the judgmental eyes of my dancing partner.
