We recommend planning the work at home like a Weekly Business Project. The uncertainty does not allow estimating the end date. Let's see the resources that you should be considering.
- Plan weekly activities, defining the goals you must meet with your Boss, partners, and alliances.
- Wake up, get up, eat breakfast as you usually do, not in bed.
- Don't stay in pajamas, weekend, or gym clothes. Get dressed as if you had to go to the office or your co working. lncredibly, wearing the same clothes as if you were going to the office helps you, emotionally and mentally, stay focused when working.
- Plan meetings and calIs with an agenda so you don't feel tempted to talk about COVID or any non-work related topics.
- Get up to hydrate.
- Consider your lunch hour, and until that time, do not stop working.
- Plan a specific time to check the news and keep updated with what is happening in the world.
- Be flexible. Richard Branson, who works from home, recommends: "maintaining the flexibility to stay productive." Work in the hours that you feel most productive.
- Use the Google calendar or other tools to alert the times that you stipulated for each activity.
- Limited - let's check if investment in new software or applications is required.
- Check the platforms available to do conferences call, webinars, and share documents.
- Check the tools to protect both personal and corporate data.
- Set up alerts with security updates.
- Your workspace should be clean and organized, with good lighting, a comfortable chair, and at the end of the day, you will leave you orderly like in your office.
- lf you like music, it will help your focus.
Do not forget to exercise, eat healthily, and share time with your family and friends.
Productivity = planning +balance+ wellness.
