Staying focused when working from home
Here are my top 4 tips for staying focused when working at home.
- Have a schedule
Having a schedule that you stick to, is the first key to successfully working at home.
There is no way that you can just wing it and hope for the best.
Plan your week in advance factoring in your work time, family obligations and leisure time.
I use a simple colour coded calendar that outlines all of my weekly activities, and I make sure that I show it to my Wife so that we are both on the same page.
The great thing about using a calendar such as this is that whatever you are doing, you are focused on that task at the time.
If you are working on your business, you are working on it.
If you are spending time with your family, then you are present with them, and focused on them.
I also schedule my daily tasks the day before, so as soon as your butt hits the chair the next day, you know what you are doing and you are off and running from the get go!
One of my main problems is to stay focused. I am always spinning from 1 thing to another because I am easily distracted and I never know what task to put first.
I will try to implement these strategies in my work routine from now :)
