I slipped into LIW the final step was the hardest going from being in the office once a week to roughly once a month. It was interesting to reflect on how just a little physical co-presence went a long way in making me feel connected to the team. I’m a couple of years in now and it’s easier but the technology is still a hard interface missing some of the soft nuances of human interaction. When I tell people I LIW usually the first question is it must be hard to motivate yourself each morning to start in reality (and perhaps related to my mild OCD) starting is fine … it’s stopping that’s the issue not helped by my mobile combining work and pleasure.
