One of the biggest challenges to working at home is finding time. The other is to make it habit; something you remember to do. The easiest way to make working at home a part of your life, is to do something every day. Not only does it become a part of your life, it moves you towards your goal that much faster.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by how much there is to do when working at home. I know when I come up with a new project idea, I want to create and implement it in one day. But that’s just not possible. Working at home takes time: time to research, time to implement, and time to manage. You can’t do it all at once, but by doing a few things each day, you make progress every day.
Even if you don’t have a home business or telecommuting job now, you can still plan to do something every day to move you toward your work-at-home goal, whether it’s to read something about working at home, making a list of ideas that appeal to you and researching them, searching for work or whatever activity is needed to move you closer to your goal.
So pull out your planner and not only block time to work on your goal, but start filling the activities you’ll do each day.
