Are you a freelancer? Do you work at home? If you raised your hands for both questions, then just stop it — I can't see you, so what does raising your hand help?
Admittedly, I could raise my hand on both as well, and it's not always easy. Sure, working from home seems like the ideal work environment, but there are so many factors that change that reality. Random errands, running the books, noises from the neighbors, delivery people, dogs barking, kids, IT issues and everything else seem to ensure that you're never going to get anything done. Or bathe. There's lots of not bathing, particularly in the beginning (although I am Irish Spring fresh currently, thank you very much).
