Mon: In the office, pulled into one distraction (read: meeting) after another. 5:00 approaches, I stress about my minuscule progress on real work. Tues - Thurs: Working from home, plowing through 2 weeks of backlog. I blast the boss' inbox with accomplishments. I feel awesome. Fri: Back in the office, my boss congratulates me on the great meetings that happened Monday. She asks where I was for all the meetings Tues, Wed, and Thurs. Wants me to work on being more available, these things are important.

    I hate when people think that "physical presence" = productivity. Monday's meetings might have been great, but they were time during which you couldn't do what is required of you. I wonder if there is a way to explain this nicely to people...
