If you work from home you may have to compromise when it comes to having a work space to use. It would be ideal to have a spare room then decorate it and furnish it how you like. In reality, when launching a new home-based business, you may have to settle for a small desk in a small corner of your house somewhere – at least to begin with.

Wherever you end up working you must make sure you give your desk all due respect. If you are exploring lots of methods for making money online and working from home, you are likely to have lots of notes and ideas strewn about the place. If yo
u don’t keep control over them, you will end up losing track of where you are and what you are doing in your business.

So, you can see that it is important to keep your desk tidy and well organised. If you don’t, there is every chance that you won’t get as much done as you would otherwise.

Let’s take a typical day in a home office for example; you will probably have an idea – or perhaps a list – of things you want to do for the day before you even start. Ideally, that list should be on your desk already so you know exactly what to do and when to do it by.

But supposing you have a messy desk? If you do you will end up wasting time tidying it (or at least making an effort to do so) before you can even start work. If it was tidy to start with you wouldn’t have to do that. If you finish every day with the intention of spending five minutes having a quick tidy round before you finish work, you will be ready for action the minute you start work again the next day.

Of course if you have your desk in a public part of the house that you share with other people, it will end up being open to abuse in that way too. If this is the case you need to make it clear that whoever uses the space needs to leave it as they found it – in a tidy condition. The last thing you want is to keep it tidy yourself and then arrive for work the next day to find out someone has got there before you.

A tidy work space leads to a tidy mind – words to keep close to you if you want to be successful and productive when working from home. This basically means that if you have a clear space to work in your mind will also be clear and free from clutter. This is good news if you are trying to build up your own business from home as you will be trying to develop a business that will make it possible to wave goodbye to a ‘proper job’.

So take a look at your work space now. Does it make the grade for you or not?
