"To be an effective work at home individual, you need to have excellent critical thinking, organizational and communication skills, along with being able to block out distractions," explains blogger Holly Reisem Hanna, the founder of The Work at Home Woman.
To keep your mindset sharp and focused:
- Plan your day, set office hours: Make sure to create a time slot for each of the day's activities, This will help minimize distractions and maximize true productive times.
- Have a dedicated office space: Try not to make it near a bed or a TV.
- Avoid home-bound distractions: "Having readily available snacks for consumption, pre-planning children's activities or having child care arranged, and having a separate office space can all help minimize distractions, but ultimately it is up to you to stay focused."
- Take Breaks: "Without a water cooler and co-workers around, you may forget to take time away from your desk. When you take breaks, you'll be more productive."
"What people need to realize is that even though working from home offers a great amount of flexibility, it is still a professional job and it needs to be treated as such." Read on for more tips on How To Succeed at Working from Home.
