If you work from home for part of the week, you may be tempted to make Friday your telecommuting day. Shifting that day to Wednesday, though, can help break up the week (and make it more likely that your boss will let you telecommute).

Fast Company explains one reason why:
When you work from home on Friday, people may believe you’re cutting out early for the weekend. They may be right. It’s human nature to start in on the errands, especially if you’re pretty sure everyone at the office is wasting time on Facebook. Asking for a “peak” day — Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday — shows that your request is about productivity. You’ll work more hours without the commute, and you’ll get more done without distractions. It’s not about scoring a long weekend.
