Determine when to stop working

People working from home can be tempted to keep working until they feel too tired to keep going.

Creating habits, routines and rituals to frame your workday is essential for sustainable performance.

  • Create a hard stop at a specific time.
  • Another approach is to give yourself a specific number of work hours per day, which is more flexible as you can start and stop earlier or later.
  • Shift your focus from time to actual productivity by creating an adequate list of tasks for the day. Once the tasks are done, you are done.
