If you are working from home, many will say you are lucky; however, it can sometimes be difficult to stay focused. If you do not have small children at home, sometimes getting dressed and heading out to an internet café will be the best way to keep on point. Set a routine and a schedule. Just because you work from home, do not allow yourself to do what you want when you want. Set your hours and let your friends, neighbors, and family members you are not available for errands, babysitting, or chatting on the phone. A little self-discipline goes a long way.
