How to succeed in the home office

Working under strict working conditions at an office is a nightmare. It damages your productivity and mental peace.

Every organization, firm, or company has its own set of rules. These rules are designed according to the personal interests and benefits of the firm. The general physical and psychological needs of humans are often overlooked. For a company, their benefit is a priority.

For example, most firms do not offer paid leaves to their employees in case of emergency health issues. The reason is quite simple, paid leaves will be financially burdensome for a company. So, they make it a role never to offer paid medical leaves, no matter, whether the employees like it or not.

If you have to survive in an organization, you have to follow the rules and regulations. Verily, it is a hard nut to crack! Do you ever feel it is difficult to follow the rules and regulations of your organization? Well, nothing to be worried about!

Humans, by their very nature, require an element of freedom for their proper functioning. There is no room for self-development and grooming in a strict and controlled environment.

In this blog post, I will share my practical ways to be financially independent. Proper implementation of these steps will help you succeed at your home office.

 Know thyself

Ancient texts are overloaded with this phrase, 'know thyself.

Archeologists have discovered several remarkable monuments in old Greek cities. The words know thyself were found inscribed on Delphie's temples of Ancient Greek. But, it is a profound philosophical concept. Let me make it practical and accessible to you!

The first and foremost important thing is knowing yourself. Know and evaluate yourself. Find out your passions and talents. You will find yourself good at some skills and you will find yourself troubled while doing certain things. Humans are unique creatures. Everyone has their uniqueness. You only have to find yours!

By knowing yourself, you will better find a perfect profession for yourself. Choose a profession that suits your talents and stick to it. You will enjoy doing your work. Perfect?

Furthermore, try to figure out your limitations. Always work within your range. Don't be harsh on yourself. Love yourself. You are your sole treasure!

Block distractions

You probably have noticed that external distraction is the only thing that troubles you the most while working. It is almost a universal rule, "where there is work, there will be distractions."

Always choose a place for work that is free of distractions. Choose a calm and relaxed place. A closed room is suitable. But, I will advise you to have a window which opens to a garden. Nature can freshen your soul. Your work will be done quickly and easily without effort.

Work in your comfort hours

Working on a strict schedule of 9 to 5 at the office is mechanical. At your home office, you can work whenever you want. Never be mechanical. Humans can't be productive at a specific time every day. Especially in the case of creative works which require deep imagination, it is a fact.

Other jobs which require ordinary consciousness can be done regularly following a fixed schedule. But creativity is an exception.

Choose your work hours according to the nature of your job. If your job is creative, always be flexible and avoid following fixed schedules. On the contrary, if your job is of an ordinary sort, then follow a day-to-day fixed routine and stick to it.

Always keep your third eye open. As your two external eyes help you to look at your environment, your third inner eye gives you access to your inner world. Work when both of these words are in synchronization, that is to say, ready to work.

Take short breaks

Working consistently for a considerable duration of time ultimately decreases your productivity. Only work for a short duration. Work in milestones. Divide your long tasks into short-duration chunks. You will see that by doing so, your long boring projects will become enjoyable and easily finishable. Never be too harsh on yourself. Take meaningful breaks and do some recreating activities during the breaks to regain your work spirit. These recreating activities may be of various sorts. For example, you can play with children, walk in the nearby park, or listen to your favorite soundtrack.

Whatever recreating activity you choose, try to shuffle it with other alternatives. Make sure to limit yourself to a single recreating act. Always try something new and unique so you may not get bored.

Stay focused

While working, pay complete attention to your work. Always be focused. Try to finish your work as early as possible. Try to manage your work duration productively.

Listen! Working is one thing, and being productive is another. Try to be as productive as possible. Always work when you consider yourself at the peak of your productivity. Use your working time wisely.

You have often noticed that sitting at your work desk without doing anything makes you exhausted. Avoid sitting for a long without doing anything. Work when you have to work and take breaks when it is difficult for you to continue working.

Always take care of your work resources

One last piece of advice from today's blog post is that take special care of your working tools. A warrior is known by his weapon and a student by his book.

Always check the quality of your laptop. Keep it charged. Check and fix the bugs regularly.
Work in good light and a fresh and healthy environment. You should have all the essential materials and resources necessary for your work. Here, you should never compromise!

Follow all these guidelines. Work with complete dedication and be an independent person.
