Discover 5 Secrets to a Productive Workday At Your Home Office

Discover 5 Secrets to a Productive Workday At Your Home Office

Staying productive at home office can be difficult when you’re used to an office environment.  Here are a few secrets to keep you on track and focused throughout your work day.

 

  1. Set actual working hours.  Saying that you’ll work from 8:00 to 3:00 every day is much more effective then saying you’ll put in seven hours of work at some point before you go to bed.
  2. Set aside a space just for work.  It doesn’t matter whether this is desk in a converted guest bedroom or just a coffee table in a secluded corner – having an area that you recognize as your work space (and that your family also respects as your personal area) will be infinitely helpful.
  3. Get started early in the morning.  If you start your day with work, you will be done much faster that you expected and your free time at the end of the day will feel even more enjoyable.  Letting yourself watch TV, play games, or run errands before sitting down to work will actually keep you from focusing on your tasks, while de-motivating you because you’ll be starting and finishing work so late.
  4. Get dressed.  This may sound silly, but even when you’re sitting at your kitchen table you’ll find that you’re more productive once you’ve put on a pair of slacks and a button down shirt.  Doing work in your pajamas will effect your productivity and your confidence – surprisingly, potential licensees may be able to tell over the phone that you’re not 100% on the ball, the same way that people can tell over the phone when you’re smiling.
  5. Minimize distractions.  Keep your office area away from the TV and ban yourself from website that you know will distract you.  There are a number of programs you can use to forcibly keep yourself from sites like Facebook, YouTube, and more if you don’t quite have enough self-discipline yet.  Try something like StayFocused, a Google Chrome add-on that blocks user-specified websites for a certain amount of time while you get your work done.

 

Once you begin getting into the routine of self-employment, you’ll discover what works best for you.  Don’t be afraid to change up your day-to-day schedule now that you’re on your own!  Take advantage of all the benefits of app licensing by developing a routine that keeps you focused, productive, and happy.
