Work from home is something that many of us do not have experience with – this applies to both employees and entrepreneurs. The coronavirus outbreak forced us to test some remote work solutions, speed up the process of transition and learn to work from home.
Remote work can be organized in many different ways. Depending on the industry, work specifics and individual preferences, it can be eight hours with a short break for recovery somewhere in the middle; they can also be shorter “sprints” at different times of the day.
There are 24 hours and not a single minute more. Not even a second. Therefore, the right time management is so crucial. The market is full of personal guides telling us how to reach the right balance between professional and personal life, including healthcare and all aspects of it. However, the best thing to do is to look for inspiration with the most effective freelancers ever: Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo, Peter Tchaikovsky or Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Their every single day was divided into several parts: sleeping, working – the main part, physical exercise, additional activities, eating and also meetings and conversations.
A café, a park, a co-working office are often portable work spaces for a freelancer. The choice of particular “headquarters” might be due to numerous reasons. So, even if there is WiFi access in a park, it does not always work among all those trees and flowers. Weather and seasons can influence WiFi reception as well. When it comes to cafés we need to consider financial and social aspects of such choice. You can forget about a nice, quite place to focus on the job.
