How exciting it is, to work from home. Well, in usual circumstances it’s exciting and when you choose it to happen, it’s the best thing ever! You get to give up the commute and you can work in your pyjamas should you want to. Right now, we’re working from home out of total necessity. We miss the working spaces with colleagues and shared desks, and we miss the queue in the coffee shop when we go to get our morning lattes. Sigh.
Never fear, working from home has a lot of advantages and this situation is only temporary! We need to make the best of it, and what better way to make the best of a rubbish situation than getting organised? After all, if you’re going to think about making your home Insta-worthy, you’ve got to make sure that it’s going to be a growing trend throughout the whole house. Your home office needs to match your enthusiasm, and being your own boss is something to be enthusiastic about. With that in mind, let’s check out a few tips to keep your home office as organised as possible while you work.
Pro Tip 1: Make Your Life Easy
Organisation isn’t just about your workspace, but the way you choose to work. You want to make life as easy as possible when it comes to working from home, and with the help of websites like templafy.com, you can make your brand consistent once throughout all of the documentation that you send to your clients. Once you make one document the first time, you can continue to use them again and again. Ah, so simple!
Pro Tip 2: Get Off Your Phone
You may be working from home, but that doesn’t mean that you’ve got to stop working entirely. You should get off your phone, when it’s time to work, it’s time to knuckle down and work. Without the presence of a roaming manager, it’s very easy to get your phone out and stare at social media, but where does it get you? Nowhere. Nothing gets done and you’re not organised in the slightest. The less you have to worry about when it comes to distractions, the better.
Pro Tip 3: Make Your Space Comfortable
It’s time to turf out the old rickety office chairs and get some stunning furniture installed. You need to think about where you need everything to be to save time, and you should write a list of the actual furnishings you need – not just what you want. Filing systems and technology should be within reach of the desk to make your space organised and ready for work.
Pro Tip 4: Get Productive
It’s not easy to stay motivated to work when the TV and fridge are calling your name. So, you need to think about any one of the countless productivity apps out there and learn how to plan out your time better. You want to work out what you can fit into your day and be able to keep on top of all of your tasks. It’s not always simple, but with the help of the right apps, you can stay productive and work well.
