Nowadays, more and more people decide to give up on their office carriers and work from home. Even if it may seem the perfect solution for you, there are some things that are worth to be taken into consideration before making such a decision.
Working from home means working from your personal space. That is a big issue when it comes to work because some of us might find it very difficult to concentrate when being in such a familiar space. Your relaxing space should be different from your working space. In this way, you will be more efficient and won’t be tempted to procrastinate.
To prevent that, create a space in your house that is 100% dedicated to working. No distractions, no excuses for you to give up on your activity and do something else instead. Also, set yourself a schedule with breaks and do your best to stick with it.
Think about whether you are a social person or not. If you will be at home, you will be alone. No colleagues to talk to, no other presence but yours. How comfortable are you with being alone?
This is very important because most of us feel the need to have company. You risk to feel alone, unmotivated and your work might suffer from it. Also, depression should be taken into consideration.
The last thing that should be discussed is the feedback and support you are receiving for the activity you are doing. Make sure that your work is valued and you can count on the company you decided to work with. Have a good understanding of the project you have taken on, make sure that this activity suits your interests and your abilities.
