Working from home sounds very easy to digest. But it isn’t for everyone. However, if you are dedicated and and confident enough to work from your home place , go for it. But for all those who are skeptical to start working at home do check out these simple steps to be productive:
1- Start everyday like you are going to work.
Start each day like you are going to work doesn’t mean that you have to be formal attire. Well, clothes don’t affect our productivity, does it? 😛 It simply means to get up early , have your daily breakfast and start with your work. Aim daily to-do targets and accomplish them in order to be satisfied at the end of the day.
2- Set up your own office.
Choose a place where you would like to work at home. How would you be able to give your 100% if there is disturbance around you eg. the noise of the television? Its a complete chaos if you work in such a place. You will lack concentration in your work. So set up your boundaries in a silent place.
3- Begin your day 30 mins earlier than you plan to start working.
This is crucial when you start your work in the morning . It’s important to give yourself time in the morning to be prepared to spend the whole day working. Counter-productive is when you feel restless while working from home. This is basically because you don’t give yourself time in the morning to frame your mindset the way you want to work!
4- Think about when you do your best work and plan accordingly.
Everyone has their best time in a day that brings out the most out of them. I prefer doing the most hard and strenuous work in the morning. As we all know our mind is fresh early morning . This helps us to tackle and resolve our problems easily.
5- Make a strict schedule and work accordingly.
Plan wisely. Make your schedule and strictly work upon it. Take a note of the hurdles that will affect your work and come with the solutions to tackle them. This helps you to make your work much easier . We usually lack interest if we continuously work . Make your work a fun loving task.
6- Stay connected.
Working from home can be lonely. Turn on your video chat for work with your employers or employees. You don’t really need efforts for doing this as everything is done with couple clicks. In your break time go through news channels, tweets, various sites etc.
7- Check in with your team throughout the day.
Engage with your employees. Always stay connected to each other through video chats. They bring out the best results where you actively manage and direct them. If you have employed them, then don’t forget to take daily reports. Working from their places, they might lose the enthusiasm for completing tasks assigned. Do not let this happen by taking daily reports as to how much the work has been done.
8- Make sure to “close the door” at the end of the day.
Its easy to keep working for hours if you love what you do. As a startup, it’s quite important to work most of the time. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to stop at the end of the day. Take regular breaks and have a walk in the evening. Go out at weekends and chill with your friends. Even if you want to work during the weekends make sure to take timely breaks throughout the day. This will help you stop your boredom and make your work productive.
