How to Set Up Your Perfect Remote Work Schedule

If you’re not a huge fan of 9 to 5 workdays, working from home may sound like a dream come true, but it comes with its downsides. Staying productive and motivated to finish up your work in time can be tough, but you can solve this problem by perfectly scheduling your day.

Body Clock

Now that you can arrange your time any way you want to, you can start working at the times when you generally feel most energetic. Take your body clock into the account, and start working in the morning if you’re an early bird, or much later in the day if you’re a night owl.

Limiting Your Hours

Procrastination is often an essential part of working from home, but you can avoid it by limiting your hours. You’ll become more efficient and avoid temptations this way because you’ll know you have to finish work at a designated time.

Take Breaks

Scheduling breaks is equally important as scheduling the rest of your workday. You’ll see for yourself for how long your attention holds when you work remotely, and break your working schedule into several sections based on that.

Here’s the truth that most people don’t tell you. This whole “building your own online business” thing is hard as shit!🙃 It is one of the most challenging things I have ever done in my life.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ But it is also by far the most rewarding, amazing thing I have ever done for myself. I have a life that I swear only existed in dreams. 💫 I have infinite possibilities and autonomy in my life. And you can too.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ So here’s what most new entrepreneurs need to know if you know you want this more than anything, if you are ready to go all in, and if you want the no BS truth about what it takes to succeed.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 1️⃣ Google is amazing but you can’t expect to build a 6 figure business on Google & freebies. All the other successful people you see are there because they invested in top level knowledge, tools and guidance. 💯⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 2️⃣ There is no secret – so stop searching for one. There are a lot of different paths to success. The “secret” is to learn, provide yourself with opportunities, and take action – always. 👏🏼⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 3️⃣ Learning a skill is very important – you obviously either need a service or product to offer. But you HAVE to learn how to run a business too. And that is a very different set of skills.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 4️⃣ You cannot expect to keep doing what you are doing now and just throw your new business in the mix. Things are going to change. Your finances, realigned. Your time, realigned. Your priorities, realigned. If you want building this business to actually happen, you are going to have to change your life too.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 5️⃣ Almost always, you have to do the scary thing 𝐁𝐄𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐄 you see results. You have to invest, you have to put yourself out there, you have to take that risk…. If you keep waiting for the results to happen first, you will never succeed.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ This might sound hard but it’s the no BS truth. And I share this because I want you to succeed and get out of this stage of feeling stuck, spinning your wheels, and still dreaming of the life you want instead of living it. ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ If you are ready to learn how to run an actual online business and finally get things off the ground 👉🏼sign up for Laptop Lifestyle Bootcamp.
