When you think of working from home, what comes to mind? Waking up late? Staying in your pjs all day? While this would be a dream life, it is just that—a dream.
Working from home is actually hard work if you want to be successful at it. But it is also fun, as you do get to work on your own schedule.
Ready to take the first step? As a Pink Zebra consultant, I want to help give you the tools you need to make working from home a success!
Let's take a look at some ways you can increase your chances of being successful when working from the comfort of your own home:
Organization Is Key
As with anything, you need to be organized in order to improve your chances of success. When you work from home, you not only have your work-work staring you in the face, you also have your everyday housework in front of you, too!
Therefore, you need to stay organized so that you do not let your housework interfere with your time working—and vice versa! Create a schedule and to-do list for each week/day so that you can be sure to stay on schedule with both.
Have a Place Just for Work
Your kitchen is for eating. Your living room is for watching TV. Your bedroom is for sleeping. Every room has a purpose.
Therefore, you need a room where you can go to work. That way you can feel more like you are in work mode and less like you are at home.
Within your work room/space, you can keep all your office supplies and materials so that you are able to stay even more organized when at work. Plus, if you have other family members at home with you, then they can know that when you are in that room/space, you are at work.
Set Your Schedule
One of the great things about working from home is that you can create your own schedule. However, creating a schedule is a must. If you don't have a schedule to follow, then it can be really easy to always be working or doing housework.
Don't let the lines get blurred when it comes to work time and family time. Set office hours and take breaks each and every day to ensure you are completing tasks but also taking time away from work so you do feel like you have family time.
