Remote working can be a great way to use your skills and work from anywhere. But it also requires some self-discipline and planning.
Moreover, working from home tends to blur the line between work and life. The time-blocking method can be helpful to keep you on schedule, and as a result, you can make time for what matters to your personal life.
Here are three tips to help you stay productive using Time Cube for happy and successful remote work:
1) List tasks:
Before you start working, list all the tasks that need to be done. Prioritize the tasks by importance. Then estimate how long each task will take and set deadlines for each.
Select the Time Cube model to set an estimated time for the task. Turn the Time Cube and start working as it counts down. When the time is up, you win if the task is done; if it is not done, give it another five minutes.
2) Take a short break: Take short breaks between tasks to refresh your mind and get back into the groove. It’s also important not to work for more than 30 minutes without taking a break; otherwise, you risk getting burned out and losing focus. Turn the Time Cube to five or ten minutes and enjoy a cup of coffee or relax.
3) Set closing time:
Establishing a closing time is essential for remote working at home so that you can stop working at the right time instead of working late into the night when your energy levels are low, which leads to mistakes that can be costly. Embrace quality time with your loved one, family, or pets.
