With the new year, brings a time for reflective and rededication to your personal and work life. How does your project team work together? What needs to stay the same and what needs improvement? How can you be a better remote team member? Here are five New Year’s Resolutions for remote workers.
- Networking/Meeting new people
Sitting in the comfort of your own home becomes a safe place and it is easy to fall into a rut. Branch outside your front door and find chances to meet new people. One great way to expand your personal and business relational network is trying a co-working space like desk chair™.
- Creating a Workspace
Don’t spend 2018 working on your couch, find your work style. Are you a clean, simple minimalist worker or do you need bright colors surrounded by photos of your loved ones? Regardless how you work, find your groove in the new year.
- Productivity Increase
Are barriers at home distracting you from work? Find those obstacles and shut them down to increase work productivity.
You are in the comfort of your own home with the ability to tune the world out with snack food and home appliances; sometimes saying healthy is challenging. Taking your dog for a walk or joining the nearest gym for a spin cycle class each day are some steps to becoming more healthy. Create an exercise routine and stick to it!
- Team engagement
Speaking up in meetings, reaching out to team members with company questions or just say hello; find ways to engage with your team in 2018. With new connections and friendships within your team, think how much stronger of a remote worker and/or manager you will become.
