The Times When You Are Most Productive While Working From Home

Prefer To Listen

In my previous post “Working From Home And Self-Discipline” I had mentioned about the importance of becoming AWARE of your BEST times, when you are most productive.

What does it mean?

It simply means that, you identify the times during the day, when you can complete a certain task in least amount of time, easily and effortlessly.

Why is it important to know your best times?

When you work from home, as a self employed professional, you are not paid for the hours you put in. In other words time put into every activity leading to the results matter.

Let us take the example of a SMART goal illustrated earlier in one of my posts:

GOAL

“I want to write a short blog post containing a minimum of 100 words, with OR without an audio, within two business days of making a decision to write.”

STEPS

1) Organize your thoughts,
2) Type the Headline, Body and Call to Action for the Blog post
3) Edit
4) Publish it in your blog

How do I use my best times to accomplish this goal?

I will do my best to explain and hope you too will be benefited.

1) I know that I am productive from 7.30AM to 11.30AM and from 4.30PM to 7PM.

2) When it comes to writing, I can be laser focused for a maximum for 30 minutes.

3) I like to take short 5 minutes break.

This kind of self awareness, puts me in the driver’s seat. On the first day, I organize my thoughts on a simple sheet of paper and on the second day, I write the blog post during the times when I am most productive and publish it. I take five minutes short break between writing, editing and publishing.

Had I not observed myself and noted the times when I am most productive, I would put off doing activities that are essential to run my business.

The point here is…

To become AWARE, when you are most productive

To become AWARE of the longest time you can work on a single project.

To take short breaks and recharge your logical and emotional brain.

    Working can home can be difficult and it does require discipline but if you are well organized and focused it is far better than having to go to any office.

    You are quite correct with your points. I start my day with my objectives decided. I then divide my day into sections and during the work sessions I am totally focused.

    I would always recommend working from home.

    Lalitha,

    I enjoyed this blog. The requirement to show up as a ‘professional’ and take personal responsibility for your performance is particularly important if you are working on your own and from home.

    The best book I have read on time-management is David Allen’s ‘Getting Things Done’. Just as important for the start-up entrepreneur to use their time effectively, as it is for the corporate manager looking to improve the productivity of a large team.
