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.
