Most days I’m grateful for where I’m at in my career. I’ve had the privilege of working remotely since 2016.

You usually hear about the typical benefits. Dressing comfortably, flipping the laundry in between calls, showering when you want.

Yesterday I had to drive to an appointment 30 minutes away in the midst of out of service traffic lights and rush hour traffic.

All I could think about is how little time I’d see my two young children during the week if I added a 1-2 hour commute to my life. Thoughts like this make me both grateful and motivated to do my best work.
