Work From Home Transition

Working from home may be a dream-come-true for many people but for some, this change is not easy.

It has been said that by the end of the next decade, most employees will be working from home (source).

I don’t know if this will happen in the next 10 years…

However, one thing I do know is that the number of people working from home is just going to increase as the year goes.

It is wise to prepare ourselves (emotionally and mentally) so we can transition smoothly.

Conclusion: How to be Motivated Working from Home

Working from home requires prodigious self-discipline and determination. It is easy to get distracted by the on-going notifications and social media noises.

I have been working for the past 10 years from home. initially, I didn’t get much work done because I was always multi-tasking, rapidly switching from one task to the next and in the midst of it, I lost focus.

I became more productive when I put my phone on silent-mode and disabled all pop-ups notifications. Setting a strict schedule to check my emails also helped in increasing my productivity.

I strongly suggest that you consider investing in a comfortable ergonomic chair because you’ll be spending most of your time sitting on it. If your current chair is not comfortable to sit for long it will affect your outputs, moods and worst of all, your health.
