Working from home can be liberating, but also tricky: It’s difficult to stay focused in an unrestrained environment. There’s no one to ask you what you’re doing or remind you about deadlines. You may get sick of yourself in pajamas.
According to this Microsoft article, there are some easy ways on to avoid the pitfalls of working from home:
- Set up a separate work area, with a computer and a specific computer and a reliable internet connection
- Make sure to store and back up your files
- Try to stay connected with colleagues by being available by phone and instant chatting tools
By creating a more formal work environment, it’s easier to stay focused and productive.
