Isolation to Combat COVID-19: How to Work Effectively From Home

Isolation to Combat COVID-19 How to Work Effectively From Home

“Stay at home, isolate yourself.” This instruction has become a regular and common one since the outbreak of the corona virus also known as COVID-19. But, what happens to business activities when everyone stays at home? Does it mean work will come to a stand-still?

The good news is that companies can still carry out their business functions by letting their workers work from home. Also, outsourcing tasks this period can help companies avoid work piling up.

However, working from home requires adopting certain proven steps. This will help boost productivity while working from home. Topmost in the list of those steps include the following;

1: Keep Your Expectations Realistic

While you target to be optimally productive, you should be realistic with your expectation. Bear in mind that working from home can be tricky. Your productivity level may drop because of distractions here and there. People who are used to working from home may navigate through such distractions to achieve their targets.

So, you should set realistic targets, taking cognizance of unavoidable intermittent interruptions that can slow you down. Therefore, even if it takes you a whole day to accomplish half the work of a regular day at office, that’s still okay. So, try not to be hard on yourself, bearing in mind that you also need to cater for your family and stay safe in this season.

2: Use a To-Do-List to Get Things Organized

A to-do-list can help you make your daily goals specific. As mentioned earlier, be realistic when you set your goals. Be truthful to yourself about what you can achieve per day, considering the factors mentioned earlier – e.g. unavoidable distractions. A to-do-list will also help you manage your time better.

Don’t stretch yourself when you can’t meet your goal. You should take breaks in-between to check on your family members and be sure they are taking proper precaution to combat corona virus. Tell yourself that you can always finish the undone task the next day.

3: Avoid Distractions as Much as You Can

While some distractions are unavoidable such as an emergency situation at home, you should do your best to avoid the avoidable ones. For instance, you should keep your phone on silence, stay away from the television set, and choose a secluded spot in your home.

4: Make Sure Your Work Tools are in Top Condition

From your home WiFi to your computer, tablet or other work tools, make sure everything is in top shape. You don’t want to be running helter-skelter at the last moment. Check to see that everything is working perfectly before you start working.

Finally, you should make sure that your goals and accomplishments can be measured at the end of the day.
