Tips2.jpg Have a dedicated office space

Office-Home.jpgIt is very important to designate one room (or even a large closet) as your office. This space should have enough room for your desk and a cabinet, it should be quiet, comfortable, and if possible separate from the rest of the house. If you live in a small place try to dedicate a quiet area where you can have your desk. Whatever your office looks like, make sure the only thing that happens in that space is work.

♦ Treat your work day as a work day

The first few hours of the work day can have a significant effect on your level of productivity. This means getting up early, showered, and dressed like you’re going to the office. It doesn’t have to be a suit and tie or a pencil skirt – that’s one of the benefits of working from home, after all – but getting cleaned up and dressed makes it easier to stay “work-minded” all day.

Take Breaks

It helps you to be efficient and productive as well as keeping your day structure. A great Mac app called Breaktime can help you schedule your breaks.



Make your home office efficient but also pleasing

It is easy to keep your personal documents such as, birth certificates, mortgages records, bank statements, etc, in the same room as their business files. Be careful not to get the two mixed up or misplace client information. Maintain your desk free of clutter.

 Adopt a system you trust

It’s easy to get distracted at home. One way to help you understand your productivity level is to start tracking the time you spend at the task at hand. Create a work-sheet where you can enter the task, task description and time spent on that specific item. Creating a system will make your work-day more efficient and productive.
