There are so many blogs out there with tips on transitioning into a life working from home. They give you multiple methods and things to look out for that it can soon be overwhelming. It’s time to focus on just one tip to transition and that is to TRANSITION SLOWLY.
There Really Is No Need to Rush
Working from home is vastly different to working in an office. You’ll need to get used to working in an environment that you also live in. Finding the motivation to start working and avoiding all the distractions at home isn’t going to be easy. Not everyone succeeds overnight.
But that’s okay. This isn’t a sprint but a marathon. There’s no need to rush through every aspect of the transition.
Make Sure You’re Heading in the Right Direction
When you transition slowly, you have the chance to see the steps you’re making. You get to look back over the lessons you’ve learned to make sure you’re heading in the right direction. There is nothing worse than getting yourself into the groove within a week to find out you’ve gone completely in the wrong direction for your work. You’ll just have to go right back to the start again and work on the right path.
Transitioning slowly means you save time. Going back to the start means that you’ve wasted a week and now you have to find your groove again. When you transition slowly in the right direction, it may take a bit longer but each step you take is a productive one.
This really is the number one tip to transition into a life working from home. It isn’t a race and there’s no finishing line to meet. Transition slowly and you will succeed.
