Genuinely interested in a wide response on this so boosts are appreciated.

When it comes to working from home, "distractions" are:

@punkscience the problems inherent to modern office work at home or in the office are made impossible to ignore, the fact you can jerk off and play video games 5 hours of your working day and not get fired can no longer be ignored and really changes your perspective

@Fourteen Clearly I haven't been making the best of this situation! 😀

@punkscience try it, you would be suprised by how far you can go before they'll fire you (may vary depending on country)
So much office work is pointless busy work, you ever hear that figure of office workers doing about 3 hours of actual work per day? If that's the average then a smart person is doing even less

@punkscience A little bit from column A, a little bit from column B, but the biggest distraction I've found while working from home is work itself.

I do not long for meetings, and I actively cringe when I get slack message asking for a video call, but the biggest negative to working from home asynchronously has been the "midterm project" problem -- everyone seems to want to interrupt me and treat me as if I'm only working on their shit. Having 4 or 5 different people interrupt me pretty much every day triggers my anxiety something fierce and ends up completely obliterates my momentum.

Everything's slowly turning into "a conversation" now, and I have to constantly remind stakeholders that they don't have any work for me in JIRA.

@punkscience I'm also split between A and B, though probably more B given my neurobiology. That said, in person is generally way more distracting.
