Work at home? Sounds good! But how to solve the day of managing time and space when we have young children? Here you share these tips that have worked me for more than 5 years of working at home with my youngest son: 1. keep your expectations real.-If you know your kids, you know that you can not confine you for 1 hour in a room to work uninterrupted, nor aspire to complete 8 hours of work per day and keep everyone satisfied. Propose more realistic goals according to your situation and family requirements. A day’s work for 3 or 4 hours already is enough for anyone who works at home, but keep in mind that 1 hour daily of well orientated work can become a source of income. 2 Find your space-designates a place of work, in which you feel comfortable with your sons. Don’t have an Office, but it is a corner where you find all your hardware work. For many moms their best corner is in the room or the kitchen, because children can devote to other activities while MOM deals.
Until my son was 3 or 4 years, working at floor level allowed me more time without interruptions, since he probably felt closer and accessible. 3 Plan.-of what serves have 1 hour of work if you desperdicias it answering e-mails or browsing social networks? At the end of the day you’re tired and you’ve failed to increase your income, unless these activities are key to your business. On the other hand, have an action plan with detailed for every day activities lets you sit down to work with a purpose in mind. My recommendation is to devote a few hours a week to plan your goals and detail the activities for each day. 4 Works in periods short.-When you work around children, don’t spend more than 10 to 20 minutes until they return to demand your attention.
