Work from home – How good it is! But…
What about those distractions?
Pets, kids, husbands, wives, phones, TV, knocks on the door…
Here are some great rules to follow when you work from home:
But I can set my own schedule when I work from home!!
It takes discipline to work from home. I’m often tempted to turn on some music when I work. That’s great, but sometimes the song catches my ear and before I know it my mind has the words of the song running along rather than my work. Sometimes I have to change my station to one a background instrumental.
Self motivation is another biggie when you work from home. I sit at my computer and look around my house. I see the things that need to be done and I think, “I’ll just go do that for a few minutes and then I’ll get back to work”. Before I know it my few minutes has turned into an hour or two. Make sure you set aside the time to work. Don’t let yourself get sidetracked by the things around you that need to be done.
Make your work from home “work”!
Go for it! Set your work time. Make a space that is comfortable. Turn off the distractions and go to work. You don’t have to work 8 hrs straight! You CAN set your own schedule to suit your style. Just be diligent. Make the time count. Earn those bucks!!!!
