  1. ¡¡muy buen apunte, compañero!!
    Estos consejos vienen de un practicante con credibilidad, un home-based worker “que se lo monta bien” asi que los he leido con suma atención. Coincido en casi todos los puntos. Aunque la oficina la tengo en el Parque Tecnológico, y ahí esta la mayoría de la gente, yo suelo trabajar en casa porque allí soy mucho mas productivo.
    ¡¡gracias por compartir!!

    1. ¡Hola Amalio! Muchas gracias por los comentarios y por validar el artículo también con tu experiencia. Me parece interesante el constatar cómo seguimos, los trabajadores a distancia, confirmando que somos más productivos trabajando desde la “ofi en casa” que desde la “ofi” tradicional y aunque ya he empezado a ver una tendencia a convencer a los trabajadores a volver a la empresa espero que sea parajero, porque, para mí, eso sí que sería una pérdida de tiempo si tuviera que ir a trabajar donde están mis compañeros en Carolina del Norte.

      En fin, que todas estas herramientas sociales demuestran que es posible ser productivo trabajando desde dónde más cómodo te sientas sin tener que justificar tu presencia o no con lo que haces. Quizá la mayor ventaja del mundo laboral de hoy en día 🙂

      Gracias de nuevo, Amalio, y espero que nos podamos volver a ver y coincidir en algún que otro viaje jeje

  2. Also designing your home office is fun at the same time it can boost your productivity. Having a cool and clean station is a big factor in working also chairs and desk must be quality for the sake of your employees convenience.

  3. I could totally relate to this article, Luis.
    Personally, the main ingredient for productivity when working from home is discipline. There are a lot of distractions that are found at home and on the internet. Setting goals everyday and focusing to finish it before the day ends sounds like a great plan but we have to admit it’s very hard to accomplish.
    Remembering those techniques above and a little bit of help using some productivity tools make a way for success, help us to stay motivated and lessen procrastination.

    1. Hi Conor! Thanks a lot for dropping by and for the feedback comments! Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂 I couldn’t have agreed more with you about the main ingredient being *discipline*. It’s spot on and perhaps one of the main reasons why a whole bunch of knowledge workers do not enjoy working remotely that well, because they have a tendency to lack such discipline, so heading to the office environment seems to bring it back, apparently.

      Agree 100% on setting up daily goals to achieve by the end of the day. It’s something that I used to do myself and, as expected, I failed time and time again. So the little trick that I am currently working on is set up all of those various different goals, lots of them, and then help me achieve those that I feel are the most worthy getting them done. Something along the lines of pick and choose from a wide range of choices and stick around with those I think would bring bigger impact altogether. Seems to be working all right so far…

      RE: Procrastination, there used to be a time where I thought that it was rather negative to suffer from it time and time again, but recent readings that I have done over here, then here and then over at HBR have demonstrated how procrastinating every now and then is not too bad. In fact, it has got its own benefits, too! 🙂

      Thanks again for the feedback and for dropping by! Good stuff!
