A lot of my readers aren’t at work today because it’s snowing up and down the east coast. And that’s great, right? Right. But for more reasons than the fact that you can work from the comfort of your own bed. You can actually work on your own goals from your own bed (which, to me, is much cooler than working on someone else’s from an office). Not necessarily saying go out and look for another job, especially if you’re on the clock. But, just like you take a 15-minute break at work or an hour lunch, being at home allows you to be in your own zone during those breaks.
Usually, when we get home from work, all we want to do is relax. Your work hours are your most productive ones. So, since you’re in a comfortable place AND you feel like being productive, why not produce for yourself during down time? Outline a business plan. Set some professional or personal goals. Start on chapter 1 of that book you said you were going to start (reading or writing) two years ago. Really make the most out of the day if you don’t have the opportunity to work from home often. And, if you’re lucky enough to not have to work, well you should be producing for yourself all day long.
Ralph Marston said it best: “What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.”
Make professional development a priority.
