Working from home

There is something called “Work from Home”. I thought how novel was the idea of working from the comfort of your home …wow. But the term has been twisted and turned beyond recognition now. “Work from Home” is now synonym to working from home after office hours, working from home on the weekends , working from home means not be able to spend time with your family.

In most of the organizations in India  , work from home , is the right of the manager. Its like that , that the personal time of the employees is the personal property of the manager. Some people decide to take things in their own hands and not agree to the terms and conditions of the mangers and are loathed for that, but atleast they have a life outside of work.

An interesting conversation with a boss from my last organization: My boss came to me and told me that you have to look into this too. I said OK, these days its quite busy so I will take a look tomorrow. He says,” Well what are you doing after going back to home?” , I say ” I have lot of other things to do when home”. In short , even if I have free time I would not do office work from home everyday, come on I have not sold myself for a fixed sum that I get at the end of the month.

As they say the more you struggle the deeper you go in the quick sand. So work after office hours is like quick sand, the less you struggle the more breathing space you have. So I made up my mind, I need not struggle much when outside office. I have seen it works.
I think you need to take a call on your life, your bosses will never stop exploiting you. You need to take your work life balance in your own hands and learn to live life better. 🙂 So let go off the bonds of working from home or late hours , just let go and you will enjoy life better.
