That’s not easy, especially if you’ve spent your career in an office. Whether you work for yourself or as part of a virtual team, working remotely presents unique challenges.
There’s the issue of finding a designated workspace—whether it’s a home office or a shared working space. You’ll have distractions and disruptions. Perhaps you need to make an impromptu trip, or a family member pops in unannounced, and suddenly your carefully planned day is upside down.
Let’s look at how you can remain efficient even outside your comfort zone:
Systems are key.
Having a system in place makes all the difference between being efficient and productive or overwhelmed and stressed out.
Create a system that suits you and keeps you accountable—regardless of where you’re working.
Whether it’s the Pomodoro technique or some other task-based method, adopting a consistent approach to work is essential.
Enjoy your routine.
Working remotely should be fun—or at least not stressful.
