You might hate going to work every day, but going to the office is the best way to become a productive worker. Not only are you away from the distractions at home, but you’re influenced by the energy of your co-workers so you’re more likely to meet most of your targets for the day. This is especially true if your boss keeps monitoring your progress. But what if you didn’t have all that? Working from home might seem like an ideal situation, but it does deprive you of most of these benefits. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. As long as you have a designated office space, you can then begin to think of ways to increase your productivity. Here are a few places to set up your new office.
A quiet room in your house
All you need to productively work from home is a space that you set aside purely for work purposes. You can clear out some space under the stairs if you’re short on space, but ideally it does need to be a room so you can close the door for privacy. If you don’t have a spare room, then set aside a quiet corner in the living room. Once you’ve found the perfect space, you can start decorating it to inspire your creativity.
Buy an office space
There are many empty buildings on high streets that are just waiting for someone to take up residence. Technically it doesn’t have to be a designated office area, just a nice building with some security, access to electricity and wifi, and perhaps a small kitchen. If you have a little extra money in your budget, you could get a slightly rundown space and pay to have it refurbished and redecorated exactly the way you want it. If you’re lucky it might just need a deep clean and a polish from some custom concrete specialists, but you should get an inspection of the building before you spend any money on it. Remember, a good location increases the visibility of your business and attracts more customers.
Share an office space
If you don’t quite have the funds to buy an office space by yourself, you can make some calls to local entrepreneurs and tell them you have some rooms they might like to rent. Not only will this reduce your financial burden, but you will be part of a community of smart individuals who are going through the same challenges you are. These are the best people to bounce ideas off of and bring a certain productive energy to the office.
One of the best things about not being tied to an office is the freedom to work wherever you want. All you need is a portable wifi router, which you can buy from a telecom company, and a desk you can fold away in your car. New locations can get those creative juices flowing, so why not try it for a week and see how you do.
