Put a Plan Together to Work From Home in Your Existing Job
By Debra A. Dinnocenzo

Do you yearn for a more balanced life and a more flexible approach to work? Do you dream about productive workdays that don’t include the drain of time and energy devoted to commuting? Do you spend time in traffic (on the highway or sitting in an airplane seat) and wonder if there might not be a better way? Has the cost of gasoline made you determined to find a way to spend less time on the road and more time taking the Internet to work? Well, you have a growing crowd of similar thinkers.

Those workers who telework effectively — and those who want to — are likely to benefit from the following tips for teleworking success.

Be Certain Teleworking is Right for You
By understanding what’s involved and required to telework successfully, you can avoid a disappointing or career-altering experience. First it must be clear that you have a “telecommutable” job. If your job is not location-dependent, involves work that can be done independently, by telephone, on the computer, or via the Internet, then you’ve probably met the initial requirement. Beyond that, there are other considerations that make telework appropriate for some people and not for others.

For those who thrive on plenty of interaction with co-workers or who associate the traditional workplace with the motivation necessary to work, teleworking presents some challenges. Teleworking is also not a viable c...
