How often do you WFH (Work from Home)? 🏡
Here are some tips to increase your productivity when WFH:
🎯 Make a priority list for your tasks
At the end of each day I usually put together a list of tasks I need to do tomorrow in priority, so the next day I know exactly how to navigate my day.
📆 Maintain a regular schedule
Try to maintain your regular working schedule when you WFH. If your schedule changes communicate your schedule to your team.
🥗☕️ Take regular breaks and set specific lunchtime
It is important to take regular breaks when you are at home. I love to go for a walk and smell some air or get coffee. Don’t burn yourself out all day this will impact your productivity negatively.
🏡 Let others know you WFH by setting status on communication channels
If you are using Slack, Teams or any other communication channels it is great to set your status to WFH so anyone reaching you out knows you are not in the office. Also set a time block for the day on your calendar as WFH, to inform team members who need to meet with you.
💻 Proactively get back to team members who need something from you
Stay proactive and get back to others in time. Make sure you have notifications on for you Slack or other communications apps and be aware of messages mentioning you or any other issues happening in your team.
🎥 Call into meetings, be present and ask questions
Don’t skip meetings when you WFH. Always call into meetings and be present. Try to comment and ask questions. This shows that you are paying attention.
⏳ Don’t work over hours just because you’re WFH
If you WFH have an end-of-the-day ritual. 30 mins before the end of the workday, wrap your tasks and set your mind to your life events.
