7 Habits of Highly Effective Remote Worker

Offices went from bustling to busted and companies were forced to figure out how to operate with teams spread out over entire cities or states instead of in one location. 

One undeniable fact has come out of the mess that COVID-19 brought, however; remote work will be around for quite some time.

Despite the call for workers to return to America’s great cities, plenty of workers are in no hurry to return to a long commute or a 9-5 schedule that leaves them drained when they get home.  

1) Time Management Learning to manage your time is one of the biggest time savers you can implement to help curb wasted time and make your work more efficient and streamlined.

2) Create and Keep a Schedule If Time Management had a best friend, it’d be the ever-important calendar. As a remote worker, it’s not likely that anyone’s breathing down your neck to make sure every billable hour included an hour's worth of work.  

3) Freshman 15 In college they have a phenomenon that tends to affect more incoming freshman than any other section of students; the tendency to gain an average of 15 pounds during the first semester of college studies. 

4) Schedule Social Time Much like keeping track of your work schedule helps you meet deadlines, learning to schedule social events helps keep loneliness and isolation at bay.

5) Communication Takes Top Priority Talking is easy, communicating isn’t. And when it comes to remote work, communication can seem like running a marathon for someone who sits on the couch all day.
