Take your laptop home

The modern workplace demands flexibility. Sometimes to accommodate work, because international companies need to work to international timezones. Sometimes to accommodate life. Don’t discount good staff because they have childcare duties, or other demands on their non-work time. 9 to 5 isn’t the only way, so long as people do the work and are involved in the right conversations.

As a worker though, that flexibility in hours means that sometimes you need to work after bedtime, or you need to learn about a new technology in an evening or weekend event. You don’t stop thinking when you leave the office, but you can stop taking every call.
The modern workplace is noisy. It’s full of distractions. Go home and disconnect so you can have the peace you need to get in the zone. But put it in your calendar, in advance, so no one is surprised.
But only take what you need. Prepare your equipment and your space. Make it productive.
