I came across this interesting article a few days back discussing how to get more done with a work buddy and how he or she can help you stay on track.
I agree with most of the points mentioned, especially the one about collaboration. I have found that when I collaborate with people on projects, I can get more work done in less time. While there can be some loss of time in communication (although solutions keep cropping up on the web, such as Google Wave), I have found it to be a productive exercise.
A work buddy can keep an eye on you when you procrastinate, help you solve problems and motivate you during difficult times.
So, what do you think? Do you need a work buddy?
