  • As I get older I've learned to value my quality of life more, and commuting is one of those areas where you have some control over the issue. I didn't take a job this past October because I would have had to drive out to the suburbs every day. It's a 'reverse commute' and would probably have taken ~40 minutes to go around 12 miles or so. Not so bad.

    But I'm used to either working at home FT (not doing that again), walking to work (when I lived in DC) or riding the bus/subway. So driving to and from work may be faster time-wise, but it's a net loss of quality time because I can't read, take notes or nap. Since I got my current position in November (bus ride, ~30-40 minutes in each direction), my reading time has gone through the roof and I'm much happier for it.

    I think unless circumstances force the issue, I will only drive to work if it's very close, moderately close and offpeak, or 1-2 days a week. Otherwise it's just not worth it.
