I briefly forgot these were anti-tips and then I read “multitask” and began to respond; not multitasking is a great idea, because multitasking is a polite euphemism for inability to concentrate.

I’m a software developer but there are very few lines of work that don’t benefit from unbroken concentration; the software industry has been pretty much destroyed by “methodologies” used to justify meetings and interruptions.

I have worked from home since 2010 and many odd times before then. These are good points.
