10 Nov Freelancing 101: How to Create a Productive Work Space
One of the major benefits of freelancing is the ability to work anywhere. Having the flexibility of working from home or wherever you choose can be great, as long as distractions aren’t getting in the way of you getting your work done. Here are a few tips on creating a comfortable, yet productive work space:
Have your own work space
Determine where you work best and dedicate that area or room as your work space. As you spend many hours each day working, this work space needs to be a space you want to be in. Make it a creative space free of distractions, but also a place where you enjoy being.
Set boundaries when working
Just like if you were going into the office to work, you can’t have your kids coming into your workplace every few minutes to ask you questions. Set work hours and boundaries with your family and friends when you are working. Differentiate your work hours from your personal hours.
Organization is key to your productivity. Even if you are more of a messy person, keep your desk at least somewhat organized.
