Pet Preoccupation Paralysis

Our pets are great, right? Unconditional love, adoring glances in your direction, always glad to see you when you get home, and always ready to play.


Also, lots of drool, pet hair, barking and meowing at inopportune moments during online meetings, announcement of deliveries at your door, plenty of shots of cats walking in front of webcams, and the constant guarding against and accompanying notice regarding imminent attacks from squirrels, birds or chipmunks on the other side of the window – usually during an important meeting.


Today’s Public Service Announcement is regarding another Work From Home problem – PPP. Not the government aid program, something much worse – Pet Preoccupation Paralysis.


Well-meaning, upstanding, successful, pet-owning businesspeople are being slowly turned into time-wasting, procrastinating puppets of their pets. Let the dog out. Let the dog in. Let the dog out. Let the dog in. Out. In. Out. In. Make up your mind!


Move the cat off the keyboard. Spellcheck doesn’t recognize “HUIPON&^%#IK*YHBNY” – what was I trying to type? Move the cat off the keyboard. Move the cat away from the webcam. Move the cat off the keyboard. Why do you have to lay on the keyboard?!?


There is an easy solution. Flexible workspaces such as private offices, virtual offices, coworking and shared spaces are available in most communities around the nation and at a variety of price points. And often those options are available on a part-time basis so new businesses and businesspeople can work their way into an arrangement that works for them, their budget and overall comfort. And still have a professional, business-like location to call home and get some work done. And an adoring pet to greet you when you return home.


Flexible office space and virtual offices can be the answer to curing PPP – avoid PPP, get some work done and eat less pet hair. Get some office space of your own – whatever form that takes. No more PPP!
