Home Office Productivity - new blog

A new homeworking blog to keep an eye on is Home Office Productivity by Nick Usborne, a homeworker for the last 30 years. His most recent post is on knowing when to walk away from your desk. "When you work from home, it’s all too easy to equate productivity with the number of hours you spend at your desk," he writes. "In other words, many solopreneurs end up working twelve hours a day or more...simply because their desk is right there, at home. There may be times when you do have to work long hours. But don’t fool yourself into thinking that sitting in front of your desk for twelve hours necessarily means you are being productive. In fact, in my own experience, unless I have a pressing deadline, I often find that the longer I sit in front of my computer, the less productive I become."

    I had trouble keeping track of all my thoughts and ideas until I covered an entire wall of my home office with white board. I found that being able to visualize and map everything out vastly increased my productivity.
