Prepare yourself to join the remote revolution with this comprehensive guide.
Thanks to the advantages of technology, and also, unfortunately, the far-reaching effects of a contagion, working remotely has never been more prevalent.
After years of struggling with a long commute and spending extended hours at the office, you can now report to work by simply turning on your computer at home.
It seems like a dream come true. No need to dress up, brave the traffic, and spend much of the day in a lifeless cubicle.
Instead, you can work in peace from wherever you want, far from your nagging boss and interrupting colleagues.
But working remotely comes with its own unique set of difficulties.
Adjusting from an office with professionally dressed people all around you to working alone in your sweats, with only your pets or a few family members as companions, isn’t an easy transition.
Remote workers struggle with work-life balance, time management, productivity, and loneliness.
These challenges may make you question if remote work is feasible for you in the long-term.
But it can be sustainable if you know what to expect, prepare yourself to tackle the common challenges, and set your routine to make the transition as smooth as possible.
