“69% of all workers say the office is unnecessary, a figure that has grown from 60% last year.” from Mashable
I have done both & I agree, I get more work done working from a home-based office. There are less distractions from co-workers and no small talk that takes away from getting the task done effectively and promptly. I take a hour for lunch to watch CNN in spanish & I cook dinner too from 12-1pm. I go back to the task more refreshed and up-to-date with the news.
