Figuring out your working Style
this is the first step to having a successful remote working experience, how ever it may take some experimentation. What do I mean, well firstly you will need to under stand what makes you work better. . For example, do you like being surrounded by white noise? A café may be the best choice for you. Work well in silence? It might be time to invest in some noise-cancelling headphones. Other things to consider are whether you’re more productive in the morning or in the evening and whether you’re motivated by taking small breaks throughout the day or a longer midday respite. This is the beauty of remote work – getting to work during your best hours, whatever they may be.
In my case I love to work in the mornings and I love to listen to tech podcasts as I work. I typically like to do the most challenging work first. I then move onto other tasks as the day goes by. In my experience its better to focus on the hardest tasks first.
Know when to “Log Off “
This can be a challenge for many, however quite frankly it shouldn’t be. You see because people are working remote and home they feal the need to “Prove” to their employers that can be trusted and people seem to just always be available. How ever this the wrong way. Working remote is all about freedom and getting work done. Don’t always be loged in, and try to set a strict schedule. for example, don’t just respond to emails right away respond to emails when your working. Don’t just pick up your phone, answers calls during your working period. Think of it this way if your in the office and you grab a cup of coffee are you going to answer the phone?? No your not, you’re going to get a coffee take a minute and call them back. This principle stays true for working remote and working from home.
Organization Of workspace
Set your self up to be successful working remote in 2020 this means to keep your home desk organized and cleaned. Get ride of clutter and gather everything you would need to be successful in the office, just set up your homework space the same. Staying organized and focused is the secret sauce.
Morning Routines & End Of Shift Notes
In my experience I like to wake up early and work out way before my typical work shift would start. I would advice you to try the same, wake up before your shift starts read a book or exercise. This allows you to keep your mind fresh and helps with focus.
On the other side of the spectrum, when you are closing down shop for the day, its best to reorganize the tasks you completed and things you may need start first thing the next day. Remember to stay organized.
