As I get further and further into my freelance career and blogging journey, I’m finding that some things are absolutely nonnegotiable to stay productive. Working from home is such a blessing and I still can’t believe that I’m able to do it. I never anticipated, however, just how much discipline it takes to be successful in this kind of working environment. You can read more about my freelancing career here. Without having a boss walking through your living room to check on progress and an ugly office to keep thoughts of personal issues at bay, staying focused can be incredibly difficult.
Each week I try and evaluate how I spent my time and think of ways to get more work done next week. Honestly, half of this time I spend brainstorming is really spent just wishing I had like 6 more hours in each day. I can’t control how many hours are in a day but I can control how I spend them. Here are some things I do to maximize my productivity while working from home and I hope they can help you too!
