Working at home is really almost like not working. When you compare, you would be surprised how much of the ‘stress’ in the environment at your job has absolutely nothing to do with the actual work you do. Depending on what the environment is/was like for you in your career, this will make sense to you to varying degrees.
Working at home allows you to appreciate your life because you are living in a relaxed atmosphere. Right from waking up in the morning, your life is more pleasant. You can get up whenever you wake up, not when you are forced to. If you think about this difference, right there you can see why your life is more relaxed and agreeable.
There is no more need to rush to get ready for work and then to battle traffic or public transportation. When you are working at home, you can just take your time, getting up and getting ready for your day to begin and you logon to the Internet. You are already there and ready to be productive with 100% of your energy as you are not already exhausted.
It is fine if you choose to work for a few hours and then to take a break to do something else, for example give your family some attention, do some exercise, or run errands to use the time productively even when you are on a break from work.
Having gotten some things off your agenda, you come back to your computer feeling good and ready to accomplish something more for your business. You may feel like working several hours to finish out your business tasks, or maybe you will keep working longer and just take a break for dinner or call it a day at that juncture.
The point is, when you are working from home you are in control of your time and can enjoy your life. It is still very important that you have the discipline to get your work done so that you will succeed with your business. Having a great time all the time does not mean you don’t need to do whatever is required to excel with your business. Remember it is what makes it all possible if it is.
You are in control. You can start out small and build up as you get more creative and productive in your home environment. You can develop your business plan and procedures for your own timeline and keep exceeding your own standards. You will pick up speed as you get used to your ‘routine’, and rather than to slack off at that point, the best bet is to keep adding more and more ways to earn more money.
