It is hoped that keeping employees further apart from each other, it will reduce the chance of group spread as well as the opportunity for the “coronavirus” to be caught during a commute or in communal office spaces. Depending on your experience and discipline levels, this could be a welcomed change or a complete culture shock.
Get fully ready for the day and pretend you’re going to work.
Chose a dedicated workspace:
Just because you’re not working at an office doesn’t mean you can’t, well, have an office. Rather than cooping yourself up in your room or on the lounge — spaces that are associated with leisure time — dedicate a specific room or surface in your home to work.
“Have a place you go especially to work. It could be a certain table, chair, local coffee shop — someplace that’s consistently your ‘workspace.’ It helps you get into the right frame of mind.”
Stick to a schedule
Projects always take longer than you initially think they will. For that reason, you’ll frequently get done less than you set out to do. So, just as you’re encouraged to overestimate how much time you’ll spend doing one thing, you should also overestimate how many things you’ll do during the day. Even if you come up short of your goal, you’ll still come out of that day with a solid list of tasks filed under ‘complete.’
Communicate with your team
It probably goes without saying that you should be in regular communication with your team. One of the most difficult things about working from home, especially if you’re used to an office environment, is the sense of loneliness and isolation that can set in. That’s especially true considering that many people are practicing social distancing.
The strange but true rule of productivity is that the busier you are, the more you’ll do. It’s like Newton’s law of inertia: If you’re in motion, you’ll stay in motion. If you’re at rest, you’ll stay at rest. And busy people are in fast-enough motion that they have the momentum to complete anything that comes across their desk.
THERE’S NOTHING HARDER than working from home all day while the refrigerator calls your name. This usually has nothing to do with being hungry; more likely, you’re feeling stressed, bored or annoyed. Plus, depending on the size of your home, your work setup may point you directly toward the fridge – or worse, your home office is in the kitchen, with food just feet away. But what happens next is up to you.
The key is to develop a plan.
“Don’t make working from home an excuse for poor eating habits. Instead, make it an opportunity to take extra good care of you!”
Once your work hours are over, put down the computer and do something else. Don’t overwork because your computer is always there!
