Hey guys, the COVID-19 pandemic is hitting the world, and Indonesia is not immune to it. The government asks us to do our activities at home: work from home, study from home, pray from home, and, for financial matters, do banking from home.
Here are 6 (six) tips for a more effective Work From Home a’la BCA:
- Make It Like You Really Work at the Office
To work from home is a privilege and most people are happy about it. But, in fact, you have more time to slack off when working at home compared to working in full 8 hours at the office.
You may have more time to lay around on your bed because you do not need to travel to the office. Actually, you need to get out of bed, get ready, and prepare your working desk to be ready for work.
Make sure you are properly dressed and sit down, especially for video conferencing.
- Create a Productive Work To-do List
Manage your days. When you work at home, you are your own manager and, thus, you must manage your own (and your team’s) productivity. Make a work segmentation, so the team can work effectively.
At the end of each day, make a to-do list and your (team’s) goals for the next day, so you will have the right focus and clarity in your work without wasting time tomorrow morning. Give yourself enough rest to keep yourself away from fatigue and stay focused.
- Think Like A Businessman
As the coronavirus pandemic affects the global economy, you should think about how to add value to your organization, team, or customer. Think about what you could do to define problems and find solutions to help your company survive and ensure the business rolls.
In today’s pandemic, we need to think outside the box!
- Stay Connected
In this advanced technology era, working remotely does not mean working individually. You can always organize weekly meetings using many meeting platforms, like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Do not get bored with the routine at home. Make your workspace interesting over time. Make changes to make it fun anytime you work.
- Accept Distractions
When working from home, distractions are indeed everywhere: kids and partners roaming around, washing machine noises, TV sounds, and street vendors passing by.
We have to accept that some distractions are preventable and some are not–these distractions are our new reality. Just do not let them dominate your working days.
When kids get to your working space while having a video call session, let them say hi. After that, try to gently explain to the kids the meaning of work hours to make them slowly understand your routine of working at home.
However, avoid watching television or scrolling through social media. These are not productive and will distract your focus. Prove to your company that you can be trusted to work from home, even without the coronavirus.
