when you are most likely to generate quick and good output. If you are
the type who can generate quality work at midnight then do so. If you
are type who is an early riser then do your work in the early mornings.
Plan in the way that you are best able to work well. Having said that do
not compromise on the delivery quality and delivery time.
you work out of your home it does not mean that you will have your
breakfast and bath later. What this means is that have a regular
discipline. Do your exercises and other things just the way a regular
working, employed person would do. Have food on time. Have your night
sleep properly unless there is some rush job and crises of workload that
needs to be tackled overnight.
work environment is critical. It is best to have a fixed work area.
Everyone in the house should be aware of your area. It is important that
you have your infrastructure well in place. This way you will know
where to go to work, others will know not to mess up your work area, and
you will be comfortable without being distracted.
an corporate environment you will be recognized for good work. It is
imperative that you enjoy and pat yourself on your back when you
accomplish a good output. Spread the word maintaining ethics though.
burning yourself. This way you will only be doodling away instead of
working. You will end up being in a continuous state of stress and hence
will be very negative with other persons.
it clear to people at home and your near and dear ones that you are
working from home. It is not less that any other type of working when
you would have been employed. You work time is to be respected by
yourself and other persons as well.
- Just because you are working from home and you are your own boss it does not mean that you become a scattered brain. You need to have records of your conversations with Clients, maintain reporting system, have a status report going to your Clients and so on. Work and document the jobs as you would have done in a company.
