I work entirely out of my home office, which is very beneficial. I set my own hours, listen to my music of choice, and wear whatever I choose. However, because I work under a deadline, I often end up committing to very long hours. My day doesn’t end at five o’clock. I want to remain dedicated until the workload is completed. Today is a magnificent day in early August. After surviving a full week of non stop rain, the sun is finally shining. The sky is blue and cloudless, and the high today is in the low eighties. There is a soft breeze, and I would love to either mow my lawn or relax on my back deck. I’d like to pour myself a refreshing glass of lemonade, grab a good book, and sit among the sunshine. Instead, I am trapped inside completing an especially tedious project for work. I am fortunate I have a comfortable chair and a state-of-the-art HVAC system to keep me comfortable. The air conditioner keeps my home at the ideal temperature, no matter how hot and humid it seems to be outside. I have partnered my modern HVAC system with the latest smart thermostat on the market that features wifi connectivity. I have the ability to make adjustments to temperature, fan speed, and even air quality from an app on my iPhone or my Macbook. My work never gets interrupted by getting up and walking to the thermostat to adjust the settings. This allows me to be more productive, and the air conditioner makes the whole situation much more tolerable. I am hoping to complete my work quickly, and enjoy a bit of this gorgeous day.
