Daily Routines

This is when of my biggest downfalls. I have no day-to-day routine. I just do things when I see they need to be done and move on. I have no predictable plan of attack or reasonable structure to my day.
So far, this works for me. It may not work for you. And, it may not be the best thing that works for me either. I may be (okay, definitely would be) more productive and focused if I had a routine. Eventually I'll get there.

I think that talking to other work-at-home professionals is a good way to get started. Ask them how they structure their time and activities. It's a great way to figure out what will and will not work for you.

Experiment a lot. Move your schedule up, down, and all around until you find something that works for you.

As for me, I'm trying. I've started substitute teaching again and so each day brings a new work time and that makes it difficult to pin down a good work-at-home schedule. As I delve into this a bit more I'll post the resources I'm using and whether or not they're working for me.

I use a planner that lists daily chores and that helps me get everything done.

it's hard,too, when I write some days and work outside of the home others. I have a completely unpredictable schedule.
