Work in your Undies
Fantasy life or a fresh kind of hell? Listen to men who make it work
Learn the tricks to pulling off the work-from-home fantasy.
IT’S PROBABLY HIT you mid-commute, maybe mid-meeting, or smack in the middle of just another day at the office: if I were working from home, I’d be much more productive. More and more men are listening to that voice: almost a third of Australian employees regularly work remotely at least part of the time, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics research published in 2016. And no wonder: “Until you don’t have a manager, you don’t realise how much time is spent, and wasted, with a manager,” says Adam Cahn, 54, a bigend-of-town accountant who started working from home six years ago. “You don’t have that corporate BS. No meeting after meeting. You don’t have to show up in someone’s office and explain yourself. You just explain yourself to yourself.” Listen to a couple of guys who are doing it and loving it, and then maybe listen to that voice in your head.
