Tips from September 9, 2009
The Small Business tips today discuss working from home: Scheduling
- Enforce normal business hours while working at home. Stick to the schedule the business needs to operate; not your personal one.
- Keep track of time & manage it better by setting deadlines. Make sure to get your work done before tending to other obligations.
- It's easy to get lost in your personal life at home, so keep a work calendar visible to remind you constantly of work & deadlines.
- Establish a routine, especially if you have personal commitments. Get a schedule: work first, then adhere to personal obligations.
Daily Overview: Pretend you're still "in the office." Set a schedule & start a routine to keep your work on track.
