If you’ve read this blog for even a short time, you know that as a keynote motivational speaker, I’m on the road a lot. That means I have to be dressed professionally – suit and heels — with hair and makeup done, sometimes by 7 a.m. Or if it’s a travel day, that means a 3 a.m. wake-up in order to shower, shave, and soar through the air ready to go on the East Coast for a client dinner.
Given that, I’m sure you’ll understand why between trips, when I’m working from my home office, I sometimes shuffle downstairs and start working in my slippers and pajamas. Seems I’m not alone. A recent survey revealed that 20 percent of those who work from home remain in their PJ’s all day! I don’t go that far (well, at least not on the days my incredible business communication manager or intern are present), nor have I ever done what 2 percent of home workers copped to in the same survey: work naked! (And you wonder why I MUST put a towel on hotel desk chairs before sitting down.)
What’s my point? If you’re not already, cut yourself slack and enjoy knowing you’re probably not the only one reading this blog post in your PJs.
