I'm fortunate that sometimes I'm able to telework. I really value it. I've had jobs that were 100% telework, and others that were none-at-all. The contrast is what makes it great. It reminds me of an art term, chiaroscuro, the heavy contrast of light-and-dark. It gives a painting or drawing depth.
My telework is like that. When I'm in the office, I work in this sort of shared space where I have no privacy whatsooever. Sometimes the room gets very noisy, and drives me a little bonkers. On the other hand, it's a great place to share something I'm working on, solicit feedback, and have camraderie.
But then on those telecommute days, they're filled largely with silence. I'll get up early, go for a run, and be at my desk in my home office working, while the morning is still fresh, and the neighborhood around me is quiet. It feels luxurious.
