What is the number one reason why you should consider working from home instead of working from where you work?

The number one reason, I find, is commute time. Simply put: your life would be much better if you skipped commute time altogether.

Before I show you some stats and scientific evidence, please allow me to share how skipping commute time changed my life. If you’d rather skip the personal story, feel free to do so!

Personal Story

For a few years, I had a lot of commute time myself traveling for one hour to work and one hour back. I loved work but I hated commute time.

Commute time is a huge productivity killer and drains your energy. Even if you use the time productively by listening to audiobooks or reading — it’s still a waste of your time. Think: opportunity costs.

When I became self-employed, my productivity skyrocketed. At the same time, everything became easier and less stressful. When I analyzed my days to find out about the reason for this, it struck me: No commute time.

I suddenly had a lot more time and more energy to create more content. Skipping commute time simply gave me more resources.

Working from home means that you don’t have these huge drains of energy every day — office politics drain your life energy.

Scientific Evidence Commute Time

Here are some stats and observations about the negative effects of commute time:
