Timing Your Commute

Do you time your commute?

My latest Workshifting post is up, and it’s about what happens when you actually have to leave your home office (or your favorite coffeehouse):

My commute is 10 feet. I get up, wander into my office, reach down and hit the “Start Me Up” button on my desktop.


I do this daily, except for Tuesday mornings. That’s the day of the week I drive 20 miles away for a meeting, the day I leave myself 45 minutes for a trip I hope will take 25.


Commuting sucks, but there are ways for workshifters to make it a little easier. Read the post here.
