As we enter the post-pandemic world, working remotely will continue to become the new norm for many businesses. Are you and coworkers prepared to make this long-term adjustment? Here are a few tips on how to do just that.

Create a schedule

Working remotely often means you have the freedom to do things on your own time.
Most jobs vary in the flexibility of work hours, but if possible choose the hours when you work best and stick to them daily, creating a routine.

Set meetings back-to-back

Limit the number of short breaks between meetings. When you have an hour-long break between meetings, it can be easy to kill time instead of taking advantage of it. Stacking group work and meetings at one point in the day, maybe back-to-back in the morning, means for longer stretches of uninterrupted work time in the afternoon.

Set goals and deadlines

Once you have created a work schedule, look at what you need to accomplish and set daily, weekly, and monthly goals and deadlines. Especially when working from home, procrastination is the killer of productivity. Keep yourself on track and make the most of your day with specific and measurable goals.

Dedicate a work space

Whether you set up in a home office, your dining room table, or the couch, dedicating a space to your work allows for greater productivity. When you enter your work space, you should be able to focus on your work, knowing that while you aren’t in an office, it is now time to tune in and accomplish the tasks at hand.

Change out of pajamas

When working from within your home it can be difficult to find the motivation to start your day. After setting a schedule and deadlines, waking up at a certain time, tidying up your workspace, and putting on a new outfit before sitting down at that dining room table to tackle the day ahead. By getting cleaned and ready to work, you’ve already accomplished something for the day, making it easier to then jump into the next task.
