How to make Work from Home more Effective

Because of a Virus outbreak, work from home is a growing trend in today’s work environment, in which employees can easily plug-in from just anywhere they are. The policy defines the expectations, responsibilities, the eligibility and the other work from home guidelines. In short, it ensures that all employees understand what is required of them when they choose to work from home.You save time not commuting, you can work in your lowers, and on top of that, there’s a range of free tools and apps that make keeping in touch with clients and colleagues a breeze. But you’ll also know how challenging it can be to work efficiently. If you aren’t careful, domestic duties and distractions can cause you to accomplish far less than you planned.

Here are few tips for working from home more efficiently.

FORMAL DRESSING

We suggest keeping your regular routine when working from home. Dress just as you would for the office. Even if you won’t be meeting with clients/ colleagues all day, wearing your pyjama’s can make you feel sleepy and unmotivated. This helps you to prepare psychologically for work and makes it seem like another day in the office.

A DEDICATED WORKSPACE

You must carry a dedicated room/space/desk. This helps signal to your brain that it’s time for work and will help you feel more alert and organized.

PLAN YOUR WORKFLOW

It’s challenging but possible too. We recommend David Allen’s Getting Things Done for working efficiently and effectively from home. His simple “do it, delegate it, defer it, drop it” rule will help you power through your email inbox, set goals and plan your workflow. Plan out your day in chunks of time and set yourself regular breaks.  This will get your efficiency levels through the roof.

PUT THINGS BACK WHERE THEY BELONG

When you work from home, Putting things back where they belong is more of a regular event. The idea is to leave your immediate area, workspace, or workstation in a clean and orderly fashion. It helps to take your mind off work and gets you up and moving around.

BE CONVERSANT

Working in an office is the potential for collaborating and socializing with others. Like, Google famously offers its employees free food. Long lunch lines and plenty of dining tables help great conversations to flourish and this inspires innovative thinking. We suggest that you check in with your colleagues every once in a while. There are many great tools for staying in touch via video calls with your team/colleagues.

MANAGE DIGITAL DISTRACTIONS

It’s a lot easier to get distracted at home when there are no eyes on your screen except your own. However, digital distractions such as notifications and the temptations of checking out social media need to be kept in check sometimes. If you feel like the temptation is too strong, we recommend proactively limiting screen time for certain websites or applications.

SEPARATE YOUR WORK TIME AND YOUR PERSONAL TIME

If you have a strong work ethic, you may feel guilty about working from home and feel the need to over-prove yourself by working harder or longer. This is a big no-no; working from home is still a normal workday, it’s just from a different location. When it’s the end of your workday, just stop. Keep a good work-life balance and call it quits for the evening instead of burning the midnight oil.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO STAY HOME IF YOU DON’T WANT TO

Unless you’re in quarantine, there’s no rule that says you have to stay at home all of the time. Try to mix things up and take a break once in a while. There are plenty of possibilities such as coffee shops, libraries, and even co-working spaces that you can try.

Never Forget”Lead with Trust”.
