Do you find it harder to get things done at home than when you were at the office?
If so, you’re not alone and it’s not your fault. Nobody has shown you how to be productive working from home.
When people first start working from home, they struggle with productivity and efficiency. See if you recognize yourself under these circumstances:
- You have a hard time focusing at home
- You feel out of your element working from home
- You feel a lot less productive at home than you were at the office
- You feel more overwhelmed than ever before (especially if you’re working longer days than ever before)
- You get easily distracted and frustrated at home than at the office
This is very common amongst people who are new to working from home. After helping thousands of people make the transition from the office to working from home, we’ve seen why knowledge workers, office workers, and managers are struggling to get things done at home. It’s because they are missing a few essential apps and tools.
Imagine for a moment that your goal is to lose 10 lbs of weight within a few weeks. It’s common knowledge that if you want to lose weight, one of the most effective ways to do that is by doing cardiovascular exercises, e.g. running and high-intensity exercises. You could run on a treadmill, use a rowing machine, move on an elliptical machine, and so on. There is plenty of equipment available at gyms to raise your heart rate and help you lose weight.
Picture for a moment entering a gym...and it has none of this equipment. All you see is a squat rack, free weights, and dumbbells. How effective will the equipment be to accomplish your goal of losing 10 lbs?
Not very effective, right? Even though you’re at the gym, you don’t have right equipment to help you effectively and efficiently accomplish your weight loss goal. You need a treadmill or some other machine at the gym to do cardio.
The opposite is also true. If your goal is to add 10 lbs of muscle and all your gym has is a treadmill and elliptical machine...guess what. You’re not going to put on muscle either.
You need to have the right equipment for the right goal. When you want to be productive working from home, this is no different. You need to have the right apps and tools to be productive at home. Without it, you’re going to struggle and get very few things done on time.
