Working from Home... is AWESOME.

Let's skip the part where I tell you how blessed I am that I have an incredible job that allows me to go to the office and collaborate with colleagues or stay at home and collaborate with my couch as much as I want. This post is a tutorial on how to successfully work at home and be productive.

To be honest, I'm still in the beginning stages of this whole deal - but I'll give it a go.

1. Set your alarm and get up. Mine {alarm} is set somewhere in the 6 o'clocks. I hit snooze once or twice then it's up and at 'em just like I was heading to the office. 

2. Make a list. This is extremely important for those of you who are like me and are not naturally type-A individuals. When I'm working at home, my list has two parts: my work list, and my home list. For some reason, taking my sharpie and completing something on my list is refreshing!

3. Turn the television off. This is simple for me considering I don't have cable! Yeah, you read that correctly - I don't have cable! Why is this important? Think about it! How many times have you sat down to watch just one episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians and the next thing you know it's time for bed? Point proven.

4. Have a work space. Ok - I'm still working on this. My work space is currently my couch. It works for me. It might not for you - try a desk. 

5. Use your lunch hour. Yes! I'm telling you to have a lunch hour! Personally, I use this time to watch shows on hulu. 

6. Use your noggin. Remember that you have an incredible job that offers flexibility and don't abuse your situation!

Whew, those are my top 6. I'm sure my list will grow. Although I'm not a stay-at-home-mom or stay-at-home-wife, I understand why people love working from home! I'm so productive and I'm happier! Honestly.

Molly loves that I work from home, too!
