I guess I never thought I’d be comfortable working anywhere but my office.
The zone controlled Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C of the office I’ve been in for nearly 20 years was always really comfortable for me.
And I’m a creature of habit, so I was pretty entrenched with being at the office every day of the week. I’ve had other job offers from other companies that I’ve turned down because I just wasn’t up for the change. You can imagine how I felt back when the pandemic started plus I had to leave the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C comfort of the office for my house to work! It was a huge change for me and I’m not all that great with change most of the time. Also, my wife was working from home and then we had to deal with the kids doing school from home, too! It was a rough time, that’s for sure. We were inside the house together all the time, which was rough. But then we all started to find a rhythm before too long. That started with us getting out of said a/c to go outside for walks or to play games together at night. I finally was able to get the handle on how to do the online meetings as well. By fall, I was doing more work and getting much higher quality than I ever had produced. That sort of stayed with me later on with our office with the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C reopened. It hit me and others that I’m far better off when I work from my home. I didn’t need to go back to the downtown office. So I was able to square that with my boss. Now I just stay home. I cleared out a room and I added a ductless heat pump. Now it feels like I’m still in the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C at the main office.
