How to Stay Productive (and Sane) Working From Home
Here are 7 Tips for Staying Productive (& Sane) while Working From Home. A lot of people coming from the corporate or wider ranging business community come into web design and want to work from home to “escape the 9 to 5.” But the reality is, they’re actually entering the 24/7 which can be a very dangerous place.
Working from home is awesome and freeing but it’s also challenging. You need to be self motivated, disciplined, intentional and while it’s awesome to have the flexibility and freedom of working when and where you want, that comes with a large amount of responsibility.
Here are my Top 7 Tips that I’ve learned with working from home since 2009:
- Set & Schedule Work Hours – 2:00
- Create a “Work Spot” – 4:04
- Avoid/Limit Distraction – 6:21
- Create a Daily Routine – 7:58
- Know What You’re Working On – 10:42
- Keep Your Family In-The-Know – 12:19
- Be Intentional With Your Time – 13:56
Hope these points have helped you out, especially if you’re newly working from home while quarantined due to the current coronavirus crisis. And if you’ve worked from home for a while and have some additional points to share, let me know in the comments below!
