Online business allows you to work from home and in this case you have to work smarter not harder.
When you have regular job and the boss who gives you daily tasks you don’t have to think too much if we are honest. You do your job and don’t think about it so much when you come home, which is the opposite if you work for yourself. Ability to work from home is amazing and I am so grateful for this opportunity so today I want to share with you my tips to success while working from home.
1. Have a clear workspace
First thing that is the most important to me. I have to work in silence without distractions so even though a lot of my work is done online and I can even work from my bad there is no way I could do that so that’s why I have home office. My clean & clear working space that motivates me everyday.
This is my focus haven and I automatically know when I step into it, there’s a tackling of to-dos.
2. Separate work + home
Set your work hours even though you work from home & organize your day. Don’t think about dishes, laundry, errands to run during that time. Remind everyone in your house that you are not really home but at work so they don’t bother you either. Also, don’t get confused with coffee talks & friends while working, they should understand that you have your schedule even if you are at home.
3. Dress up
Would you go to your regular job in pajama or sweatpants? I think the answer is no so you should still get up and get dressed. Pajamas equate to lounge, which does not equate to work.
I first do my make up & dress up and then do the work. You will be so much productive, believe me.
4. Have everything in place
Maybe I am too picky & don’t like mess even its creative one but I must have everything in place and on hand. Make sure that things you use daily & need for work are in place so you don’t waste your time for cleaning & finding something you need.
5. Stay organized
You really need to be a master of organizing, scheduling, and managing deadlines as this will allow you to stay on track, and most importantly, make you successful. Get up early and don’t get confused by anything or anyone, first do your job & than take your time for everyone else.
There’s so much flexibility while working from home so take a few minutes to think about how you work best and build a workplace to accommodate those needs. I am still not completely done with my office & want to share it when I will be happy with every detail that is currently missing.
