Working from home shouldn’t change the way you feel or work. Home is where our day begins, and where our long days find their beautiful endings; it’s the place where we have the best evenings of our life. It’s where we feel the most comfortable, the most secured and protected. We’re so used to the good things, that we sometimes forget about our responsibilities, duties and everyday tasks that we have to accomplish by the end of the day.
It’s not said in vain that the comfort zone is comfortable because it’s familiar to us, not because it’s healthy. This is the reason almost every business owner prefers to work in the office, monitor their employees, have real-life meetings, and maintain healthy communication. However, sometimes, under certain circumstances, we have to work from home. You may think “Hm, it’s a good way to relax and work at the same time. What can be better than laying in your bed, eating your favorite food, staying in pajamas and working?” We must say that even though this sounds appealing, it is not.
Comfort makes us lazy, but there’s a way to change it!
Working from Home Shouldn’t Change You!
If you’re used to waking up at 6 o’clock, drinking a cup of hot and aromatic coffee, changing your clothes and only then going to work, you have to stick to your everyday routine, and never let it go. Your customs, schedules and practices are what makes you, well, you! If you’re used to getting up 30 minutes before the work starts, keep it like this. Sooner or later you will go back to the office, don’t let yourself forget the disciplines that were once established by you!
A Working Corner Never Killed Nobody!
Even though you’re working from home, it doesn’t mean that you can start your working day in your warm bed or spotless and sweet-smelling kitchen. You have to create your mini-office: a desk, some papers to look more professional and busy, some pens, sticky notes and of course, a laptop (or a PC, if you’re part of the master race!). In other words, instead of encouraging you to make yourselves at home, make yourselves at the office, and start working!
Spice Up Your Life, What’s Better Than That?
Even if you’re working from your comfortable nest, you shouldn’t forget about other birds that fly outside. Yes, you’re working from home, but that doesn’t mean that you should forget about the entire world. Contact your friends, meet them when you’re free, don’t forget that you’re a human who wants to operate a successful business, even if it’s needed to be done from home.
If you think that working from home is not an efficient way to operate your business, we should tell you a secret: that’s wrong. You just have to create special conditions under which you’ll have the same result that you would get from the office. Just have a look at people who work in the eCommerce industry. Most of them work from home, but still, earn a vast amount of money and enjoy what they’re doing! Just call us when you’re ready to start your business: working from home is not an obstacle, it’s all about you and your mind!
