Working from home today? Here are 5 more of our tips for getting things done effectively when you’re out of the office.
Turn off your desk lamp and walk away at the end of your day – if you’ve not tackled your list of outputs one day, put them on a ‘first thing to do’ list the next morning.
Establish and publish your focused work hours, say 9 to 5 to your colleagues and ask them to do the same – you might need to be flexible but try not to be too vague on your availability as everyone gets confused…
Stay connected online but avoid constant disruption by incoming traffic of messages – be aware of the impact you’ll have on your own productivity and others by uncontrolled messaging.
Be aware of the risk of over-working when isolated from others – join an online ‘working from home’ community, share your collective experience and develop working from home ‘top tips’.
Keep a record of your experience (highs and lows) and learn from the experience – successful home working is tricky for some and your experience will be invaluable to others.
