There’s nothing like sitting at home and working remotely as opposed to commuting all the way to your office. Well…sort of. The previous statement may be true for some people, but it’s far from the case for many others. Not everyone has the same circumstances at home, which makes remote work pretty hard for them to do. However, there are certain mindsets you can embrace to beat this hurdle, and here’s what they are.
Just like you have set hours at work, so too should you have them at home. The freedom of remote work should really be the convenience of not having to commute. Other than that, you shouldn’t be taking advantage of your freedom to set your own hours because it’s a slippery slope. Stick to a schedule, and you’ll be super productive.
Leave Your Home
If your home situation presents a less-than-practical working environment, then simply leave your home. If you have obligations to be at home, then you need to have a serious talk with whoever is requiring you to be home. Work is work, remote or not, and if you’re struggling to get stuff done at home, you should be allowed to go to a Starbucks to do what you need to do.
