Professional in Pajamas: 101 Tips for Working from Home
Practical tips to make working from home work for you!
Working from home has been embraced by employees, contractors, freelancers and small business people alike. It offers the flexibility and freedom to organize your day, work where you choose, and focus on what you need to achieve.
We had got to the stage where it was no longer seen as a ‘perk’ (well, not by too many people), but a legitimate and accepted way of working. The benefits include not having to worry about hot-desking, commuting, or your boss watching your every move. Now, due to COVID-19, it is mandatory for millions as a way of minimizing the spread of the virus and protecting ourselves and others.
There are people working from home who never have before, those who have worked from home regularly but not all the time, and others who do work from home full-time also needing to make adjustments.
We all have different challenges at this time. But even under ‘normal’ circumstances working from home can have some disadvantages. The downsides are that it can sometimes be lonely, with long hours, and the line between your work and home life can often blur. (Not to mention there is always the ever-present temptation of the fridge!)
This book has been in the works for over a year because the good news is that there are ways to manage the drawbacks, so that you can make the most of working from home (even if it’s just for now.)
It’s all about making working from home work for you.
