How to Increase Productivity While Working From Home?

Staying at home is one of the government’s measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Most people used to the traditional workplace found it challenging to adjust to the isolation and separation from officemates and colleagues. 

The transition from the usual working environment to a work from home set-up may be difficult for professionals. You may have a hard time focusing on your tasks because there are many distractions within your comfort place. To help cope up with this new trend, here are some easy tips on how you can increase productivity while working from home: 

1. Set a schedule 

Setting a plan will help you to stay on track with the duties you need to accomplish. When you make a schedule, you can have more focus because you are very much aware of the tasks you need to finish. 

2. Use your phone productively 

Your cellphone can either be a friend or a foe as you do your business tasks. Through technology, you can simply use your phone to watch your favorite movies, play a mobile game, or explore social media sites. These may distract you and prevent you from efficiently accomplishing your tasks.

On the other hand, your cellphone can also be your business partner. At Real Estate IQ, you can have the most relevant data and know-how to interpret it with a click of a finger.

3. Watch virtual events during free time 

Virtual events and online learning platforms become one of the hottest trends during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can use your free time productively by accessing our free training and webinars, where we discuss important matters on real estate investment. 

4- Read books

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” – Cicero.

Reading books can refresh your motivations in pursuing real estate investing. Visualizing and reading each chapter in a book can enhance and develop your imagination. When you imagine more ideas, your creativity in real estate investing can also grow. 

You may join our event Successful Habits Book Club, where experienced investors select a chosen book, share their insights, and discuss each chapter together. 

Your home is indeed your comfort area, but it can also be your productive workplace. Through proper discipline, focus, and persistence, you can definitely improve your work ethics and productivity in the comfort of your own home.
