Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Only a few years ago, regular employees yearned to live the dream of working from home. Taking away the hours spent commuting and the dreary environment of the modern office, and life would be perfect!
As everyone knows, reality and fantasy don't usually overlap. Wondering why you're not being more productive working from home? Hint: You're doing it all wrong.
Although it may be tempting to avoid shaving, applying makeup, brushing your teeth, etc., avoid the temptation. To stay productive, you have to put on your work attitude ... including your work clothes. Even though you're working from home, you're still working.
In many ways, telecommuting is an enabler for people to indulge multi-tasking. It is, unfortunately, seen as a means to allow someone to work another job or to complete other chores around the house. The occasional chore is no problem. But when these tasks start to interfere with your actual work, you have a problem. A schedule will boost your efficiency because jumping from task to task slows you down and affects the quality of your work.
At the office, most of the distractions are (hopefully) work related. But at home, you might have your iPod playing your favorite podcast. You might decide to take a few personal calls and peruse Twitter. The point is, distractions abound and no-one is there to shame you at home. You need to govern yourself and filter out distractions. This includes your family, by the way.
