Have you ever thought, “If I could work from home?” Isn’t it possible for me to work from anywhere?”
Yes, why not!
Working from home and working remotely has offered people the opportunity to reclaim the time they used to spend commuting.
These people live a Digital Nomad Lifestyle, which means they have control over their work schedule and preferences, as well as a sense of freedom and a chance to improve their quality of life.
We have been able to focus on ourselves, our hobbies, and our relationships by following a digital nomad lifestyle. Working from home can sometimes be just as successful as working from a different location.
We’ll show you how to take your remote job ‘on the road’ and work just as efficiently from somewhere that will spark your interest and encourage your wanderlust in the advice that follows.
1. When you’re in a different time zone, create focus blocks.
There may be an “adjustment time” for you to get into a rhythm and flow of what works best for you to get things done, especially if you are just beginning to start with working online while traveling.
Once you’ve figured out a decent technique for working while traveling, try to keep to it by creating a timetable. This will help you feel more organized, responsible, and accountable.
2. Do non-internet work during travel days
When you don’t have access to the internet, pre-write emails, blog posts, reports, and other documents to fill in the gaps.
That way, when you get back on Wi-Fi and are ready to work, all you have to do is upload or send what you need, and you’ll be able to get things done faster so that you can go exploring!
The “Send Later” option in Gmail is a fantastic tool. Simply draught your email, click the down arrow next to the send option, and choose the day and time you want it delivered. If you operate remotely and don’t want to send emails to folks who will receive them at strange hours of the day, this can be useful!
Pre-write email responses in your Notes app, then copy/paste and send once you’re connected to the internet.
3. Plan out certain details of your trip ahead of time
If you’re having virtual meetings with clients or staff via Zoom or WhatsApp, make sure you plan ahead and coordinate time zones so you’re not on holiday or without Wi-Fi when the meeting is needed. You don’t want anyone to be left hanging!
If you’re going on a day trip or heading somewhere off the grid without Wi-Fi, make sure to notify any clients, employees, or helpers as soon as possible so that things run well while you’re gone.
Free calendar scheduler apps like Calendly or Acuity are also useful for making appointments because they automatically adjust to each person’s time zone, removing any confusion.
Remember to praise yourself frequently, as working remotely while traveling might be difficult.
From the outside, and to those who haven’t tried figuring out the difference between working from home and working remotely, it appears to be simple, but every time you hit a roadblock, you recall what type of opportunities you’ve chosen.
Working from home might easily morph into a remote work experience at an Airbnb, hotel, RV, trailer, or home-stay. Find out these new possibilities as well.
