|There is one very hard thing about working in
home, it's finding the time to actually work. It is way far too easy to
get distracted if you aren't strict with yourself and truly dedicated to
the work you're doing. The most effective ways to find time to work is
to recognize the time that you're wasting during the day.

perhaps one of the simplest to limit or give up. TV time are not productive,
and you may find that there are a number of shows you can give up with
minimal regret in order to earn a living from home.

watch television, but the more you do cut, the more time you can spend
on more productive activities.
Online Surfing Time
Another place where many of us waste a lot of
time is surfing the internet. Checking our email, forums and social sites
takes more time than it has to. Yes, they're fun and you can tell yourself
that you're being productive when they relate to the work you're doing.
The key is to keep things under control. Don't
keep checking your email or favorite sites for hours on end or over and
over again. Set time limits for these things. They're just tools, and used
correctly they won't suck up excessive amounts of your day, but benefit
you the way they should.

at home. Some you can't help but pay attention to, such as children who

may be another matter. Although you want to be social and pay attention
to the important relationships in your life, but you need to have them
respect your work hours from home as they would respect your work if you
Clutter is a time waster as it slows you down
when you can't find things. My two kids tend to put schoolwork on my desk,

time for working at home, you must come up with a plan to help you. You

is particularly important for things that get your attention for longer
than they should, such as social websites. Set a timer if you need to and
stop that activity once it goes off.
Many people find a written schedule of some sort
to be extremely helpful. Know what you need to get accomplished each day
and about how long you intend to spend on it.
Talk to your family about your work needs. Find
ways to fit their needs with your own.
The younger the children are, the less they'll
be able to help you with this, but you can still figure out when you can
work while they're young. Naptimes, after bedtime and any time the kids
are in school or elsewhere are good times for you to work.
