4 Ways To Organise Yourself Better When Working From Home!

Working From Home

Working from home gives you complete freedom in many areas, freedom to spend more time with family and friends, freedom to spend more time enjoying the things that matter to you most in life, and the complete financial freedom you’ve been dreaming of.

Whilst working from home can reward you with the freedom of time, you still need to be able to organise that time more efficiently and try avoiding falling into the rut of taking your freedom for granted.

I recently started to realize how lucky I was to be able to do the things I’m doing, of running a fulltime online art business and blogging all from home, and so I’ve started to organise myself much more efficiently as the result of this. Here are some top tips on how you can do the same.

Time Keeping

We’ve all been late for work at some stage of our working lives, myself more than my fair share. Time keeping is something that you still need to work on improving, regardless whether you’re your own boss or not.

For example if you plan to start your working day at 8am and finish at 4pm then ensure that you keep to this routine throughout your working week. This will help you to both form and keep to a devoted routine of making the most out of your working time throughout your career of working from home.

Designate Your Work Area

Don’t sit in bed with your laptop of an evening or take your laptop into the kitchen where you hope to cook and work at the same time! This kind of discipline is definitely a no, no. Find a place in your home and designate your work area and perform all your work-from-home tasks within that area only.

Plan and Organise Yourself

Working from home can sometimes give you too much freedom, and with this it can encourage you to easily fall into a bad organisational routine. Don’t just switch on the computer and go make a coffee and mope around on it for a few hours; map out exactly what you’re going to do throughout the day.

I’ve said this before so many times, make good use of a workbook or diary; use an online calendar such as Google Calendar to schedule your tasks efficiently.

Work & Eat Separately

This is often more easily said than done as even I have been guilty of doing this on many occasions, but seriously don’t drag your breakfast, lunch and evening meal to your designated work area; it’s hard to concentrate on doing either at the same time, well properly at least.

Discipline yourself to keep to these four rules of working from home and you’ll soon be on the road to making fast progress in running a successful home-based business, enjoy.
