Usually, working from home is about flexibility. Every single person will have a different schedule, which will make them more productive.
It's not always a matter of early versus late. Some people work longer hours on some days to give themselves a break on other days. It's all a matter of fitting work into your lifestyle and when you're most productive.
Batching is a common productivity strategy - group similar tasks together so your brain doesn't tire with too much context switching.
For example, to break your day into three-to four-hour work sessions with two- to three-hour breaks or naps in between. That way, you can focus on specific tasks during each session.
With all the flexibility comes the responsibility to keep your calendar up to date, so your coworkers will know when you're available.
As long as your changing schedule doesn't take a toll on you or your coworkers' productivity, it's a great way to create a healthy work-life balance.

Landing oneself in a remote working job isn’t a cakewalk, and aspirants need a plan that will showcase them as the best candidate, who is cut out for working productively without supervision.
