MORE IDEAS FROM How to Stay Productive With An Irregular (Even Unpredictable) Schedule
When you have a pre-existing routine, it’s easier to fit work into it when it arises.
If you’re working from home on a regular basis, it’s good to get into a habit of showering and getting dressed, because it provides some parameters that say, ‘Work day has begun!’
Develop a reserve of cues that tell your brain it’s time for work and outline a structure you can tap into whenever you need to get down to business.
For example, work from the same place (and do nothing but work there) or listen to the same music or background noise.
You’ll see the biggest returns from a daily routine when it’s a schedule that plays to your own unique rhythms and tendencies.
People work an average of 45 hours a week; they consider about 17 of those hours to be unproductive.
Working from home means that all the chaos of your home (pets, family members, kids, and kitchen noises) is part of your entire workday.
Self-Discipline, concentration and work ethic are needed to successfully navigate this process.
