Work From Home Productivity

Learn how to stay productive working from home and develop your mind for success.

Surprisingly having a productive day is often not about what you do on that day as much as it is what you do the day before to prep yourself for maximum productivity and output. If you want to be highly productive tomorrow, then you need to set your day up to be productive by taking the right steps tonight.

The first thing to do then is to finish your work today halfway through a task. The human brain likes closure, so often you will feel tempted to do whatever you can to try and complete all your tasks. In fact though, if you leave a job half-finished tonight, you’ll be much more likely to want to get started right away when you return to work tomorrow. You’ll feel all itchy until it is finished.

What’s more, is that starting a new project is often the hardest part, and it’s resistance to that step that often leads to procrastination and wasted time. If the task is already started, then you should find it much easier to jump right back in where you left off…

One of the biggest challenges when working from home is finding ways to separate your work time from your relaxation. Because you work and relax in the same environment, the line can become blurred. If you finish your day with more tasks to do, you might therefore be tempted to send a few emails or finish a couple of projects in the evening. You’ll probably get emails and notifications from your colleagues too…

Now you’ve just woken up after a particularly rejuvenating and refreshing sleep, you should find that you are particularly creative and focused. If you then go on to answer e-mails you’ll be working to someone else’s agenda and you will waste some of that productivity. 99% of e-mails are not so urgent that you need to answer them right away, so instead focus on completing some real work while your brain is in optimal mode, and then check your e-mails at noon once you’ve done that…
