When I was kid I was not very confident in my skin. I had a huge stage fright, never spoke publicly. When I entered the collage high school I started to learning how to be in my skin. For my stage fright I decided to do something about it. I started to open myself more, jumping into every opportunity to speak publicly. It helped me a lot. Stop thinking just doing.
If I start to think, I just go back on my papers (ALWAYShave papers with you). Before the speaking publicly, I do some breathing techniques and trying to ground myself. I prepare for the task and always know my topic days in advance. I try not to have a big expectations and I believe that you can always do better.
I was talking to my friend about work. I said “If I am working from home, I’ll be renting an office .” She looked at me and told me how ambitious I am. To be honest, I am not that ambitious but I’d rent an office just for my mental health. I need career growth, immediate response and social network. Only negative side is commute, but that hours I use for reading/listening audio book…
I do enjoy working from a home from time to time: I get to create my own hours, doing job in casual clothes and there is no commuting. Negative sides are too stronger: no human contact like you are in solitary, you need to be disciplined, job is 24/7 and sometimes day gets by.
Over all, both sides have pros and cons. For now, work in the office has more pros than cons, at least for me.
