HOME OFFICES ARE PRONE TO HOUSEHOLD DISTRACTIONS



It's not always as easy as it sounds to work from a home office. Many times when you are working in your home office it can be so easy to become sidetracked with household duties that need to be done.

For many people with home offices, business associates often come to their homes. In order to make a good impression, they want their homes to be clean. Can you imagine having an important business associate coming to your home and seeing your sink piled with dirty dishes? What an impression!

You need to set your own comfort level. Do you want your house neat and tidy or do you want to keep it spotless? What if your kid's rooms are a mess? Shut the doors, it's a great time-saver compared to asking your kids over and over again to pick up their rooms.

Here are some tips to help keep the house ready for expected and unexpected visitors:

  • Pick up the house daily the best time is last thing before bed. Get things ready for the next day.
  • Keep the dishwasher emptied so breakfast dishes the next morning can be put right in instead of piling up in the sink.
  • Divide jobs in the family. It helps get the house picked up quicker.
  • If you can afford it, hire a housekeeper to clean your house once a week, once a month, or whatever.
  • Don't let dirty laundry distract you from your work. Rather than stay up until all hours of the night put a load in right before you begin to work in the morning. Switch laundry loads when you take a break. Finish laundry at the end of the day. Have each family member fold their own laundry and put it away.
Schedule office hours to times when your kids are in school. Kids can be very distracting when you are trying to work, but this will give you time to spend with them when they are at home. This system can keep your priorities in the proper order.
