Over on our sister blog jkOnTheRun, James has published a great list of tips on how to be a productive home worker. They include:
- Set up a comfortable home office
- Make a separate work zone
- Music can play a big role
- Software tools are key
- Keep a real work schedule
- Get out with people
- Dress the part
I agree with all of his tips, but especially “Get out with people” (working in isolation over long periods can get me down and damage my productivity) and “Dress the part” (getting properly dressed every morning sets me up for the day as it means that it’s time to work). For more detail on why each of these points is important, read James’ post.
