5 Ways on How to Succeed in Working from Home

This post was most recently updated on April 3rd, 2024

Majority of our team works from home. Apart from the occasional work-and-travel setup that our digital nomads enjoy, most of our work is done from home. Especially during big projects, we tend to choose our home base where we can definitely focus and be comfortable working.

That is why it is so important to establish a work from home routine that will usher you to success. As most people know by now, remote work is not for everyone. Want to know if you’re cut for this type of alternative lifestyle? Try these tips and see if it brings you the progress you desire in your career.

1) Get a Time Manager / Scheduler

Some people prefer running a timer app on their computer to set specific blocks of time for each task. You can use your phone’s alarm clock to serve the same purpose. Others, however, feel intimidated with a timer and would rather go for a spreadsheet where they can lay out hourly, daily, weekly schedules. Whatever method you pick, the most important thing is you keep track of a routine and your time.

2) Define a work area

We won’t judge you for working in your PJs but do set aside a spot in the house, even if it’s just a corner in your room, to serve as your work space. It can just be as plain as a table and chair tandem; or a full-blown command center just like an executive room in the office.

Given that you don’t have to deal with things like average moving costs since you are working from home, having this area will psyche you to get down to work, and will also be your boundary from home issues. Somehow, it brings a sense of separation from housework.

3) Tackle the most important tasks: Urgent, Income-generating, Most challenging

Do not give in to procrastination. That’s the enemy of freedom workers! Some experts say to start with simple to accomplish tasks because it gives you easy wins, thus adding up to your momentum. But make sure a bigger part of your work schedule should be allocated to the most important task. Important can be your own definition: what’s most urgent, what’s most challenging; and for somewhat is most income-generating. Define what is important to you based on your work goals. Then identify the task that needs your most attention. Get it done first.

4) Infuse a favorite activity into your schedule: a hobby, a gym workout, downtime, etc

The trick I learned to prevent procrastination, is to set aside time for rewards. For example, set 15 to 30 minutes a day to a favorite activity so you don’t feel deprived. You can even up to this to an hour if you like. Doing something for yourself will make you feel less stressed out during critical work seasons. Also, it helps you balance out your life – and isn’t this the goal of a work-at-home lifestyle?

5) Reflect and resolve to be better tomorrow

Now don’t beat yourself if you weren’t able to tick off everything in your to-do list. Sometimes we all tend to cram everything in a day even if we know it is unrealistic. So don’t be too hard on yourself. At the end of the day, celebrate your victories instead of dwelling on unfinished assignments, a lapsed deadline, or even failing to take your bath! Look at what you have achieved at the level of energy you mustered today. Then resolve to be better. After all, tomorrow’s another day – at home 🙂
