If you started working remotely at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably expected to be back in the office by now. Although continuing to work remotely keeps us all safe, it’s also a major challenge, especially if you get off on the wrong foot. Fortunately, it’s never too late to turn bad habits into good ones.
With Origin Leadership on your side, you can develop the skills you need to thrive in a remote work environment. Here’s a look at a few of the best habits out there for successfully working from home:
Create A Results-Forward Environment
Surroundings often dictate success.
- A dedicated office area is one of the most effective productivity tools out there.
- If you haven’t already started tailoring your workspace, now’s the time to start.
- No spare rooms? Check out these tips for building an office in your basement or garage.
Independence is the name of the game in remote work.
- Remote work is a great time to work on building up self-motivation and unlocking your full potential.
- An effective organization system is the cornerstone of remote productivity.
- Schedule a regular goal check-in (daily or weekly) to give yourself a chance to reflect on your progress and see where you’re headed.
Build a Strong Routine
Your office habits don’t work as well at home – build new ones.
- Start your morning with a strong remote work routine that gets you into a productive headspace.
- Tackle your hardest projects first, when you have the energy to do them well.
- Remember to take breaks for lunch, moving around, and clearing your head – it’s not good for your mind or body to sit in one spot all day.
Many people find that, with the right techniques, they perform even better when working from home. Dedicate time and energy into figuring out a remote workflow that works for you. In doing so, you empower yourself to succeed in any setting.
