5 Reasons Why You Need A Work From Home Schedule

Date Published: July 20, 2022

One of the attractions of working at home is the vision of freedom it invokes -- no time clock, no time sheets, and no one to account for how you spend your time. Yes, it is an attractive proposition, but like so many attractive propositions there is a heavy downside -- you are likely wasting a lot of time.

why work from home

When I was single, it was easy for me to work from home, especially with 2 different businesses and both has their deadlines. I don't want to waste a single minute sitting in a traffic jam so I can work from 9 am to 2 am without thinking of anything else or anyone else. I can order food in advance so I don't need to cook or think about food too.

It is pretty much the same story as when I got married, only that I had to stop for dinner time to prepare and have dinner. I can easily work again once the kitchen is done. 

However, when I gave birth to my baby girl, I realized there simply weren't enough hours in the day to accomplish all my goals. Even after reducing my work, most of my time is dedicated to caring for her, not to mention playing with her which I really enjoy too! 😀 

Now, I need to have an agenda for the day to improve my productivity and reduce my stress immeasurably. If you don't think you need a schedule for your home business then think again -- and read on.

After a spate of relatively unproductive days when my "To Do" list seemed to grow exponentially every time I looked at it, I knew something had to change.


After studying my time and chatting with some other work-at-home folks, I discovered five reasons to embrace the schedule:


  1.  It's too easy to waste time doing non priority tasks

  2. It's too easy to get sidetracked or distracted from your current task

  3. Unscheduled work time can often overlap into your free time until you don't have any free time at all

  4. Your free time can overlap into your work time until you fall behind with important projects

  5. Concentrating your time and effort on highest priority projects means more gets done


I have not perfected this practice, but everyday is getting better and better. After all, you are still the one setting the schedule so you are free to schedule yourself off for a 3-hour lunch, an afternoon, or a whole day whenever you choose.

If you find it difficult setting up your schedule and priorities for the day and week then perhaps your significant other or a friend can help you set your schedule.
