The first of each month is a funny time. It’s when we feel it’s easier to make a difference and commit to something we want to do, change or improve, even though we can do that ANY time of the year.
Not long ago I touched on the importance of reflecting on what you’ve learned about yourself in 2019, and how you’d like to grow in the new decade. How did you go?
If you’re still yet to sit down and give it a go, Remote-how shared a handful list of resolutions (let’s call them intentions because I like that word better) for all remote workers.
Did you know that people who write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them. Their tips were too good not to re-share! Check ‘em out below.
- Create an effective morning routine that will help you to switch on to “working mode” wherever you are. Improvements in productivity and your mental and physical wellbeing can all be gained if you start your day right.
- Improve your communication skills and aim for being an excellent communicator. Become more aware of what methods and tools you’re using when communicating with others.
- Grow your professional network by joining the local community, virtual groups connected with your interests or group e-learning programs.
- Learn how to unplug after work and take back your evenings! You can start by switching all notifications after your working hours and putting your devices aside.
- Plan vacations ahead and execute! Take the calendar, pick up the dates and agree with your team on them. If you leave it to the last minute, you might always feel like it’s not the right time and end up not taking any free days at all!
