8 Remote Working Tips for Beginners
2
  • Our passions lie in a few areas travel, global
    understanding, and remote work. If you're jumping
    into the latter for the first time, we're here to
    give you a few tips from the experts.
  • So youve convinced your boss to let you work
    remotely, or youve landed a new remote job - now
    what? How can you stay productive, creative,
    inspired and live up to all of the expectations
    that youve set for yourself within this new
    lifestyle?
  • As a fully-distributed company ourselves,
    leading programs that allow people who work
    remotely to do so in cities around the world, we
    have a few tips and tricks up our sleeves for
    remote work beginners.

1. Over-communicate
  • The key to being successful in any professional
    role is communication, but when it comes to
    remote work, it is an even more important asset.
    Since youre no longer a few desks down from your
    coworkers or your manager, its your job to
    schedule 11 check-in meetings with them on a
    weekly basis to connect on your goals, upcoming
    projects, and daily tasks.
  • Make sure to advocate for yourself and clearly
    state the progress youve made in the past week,
    which goals youve surpassed and which projects
    youve led. When youre not in the office, it can
    be difficult for your manager to keep your work
    top-of-mind, so dont be afraid to bring
    important milestones up on your own.

2. Invest in reliable tech
  • Any remote worker will tell you that access to
    consistent WiFi is integral to their success, but
    there's more to a successful setup than an
    internet connection. Along with having the
    ability to make video calls without losing
    connection, you should consider what tools and
    tech you'll need to do your job well. For
    example, many remote workers invest in a great
    pair of noise-canceling headphones so that they
    can take their work anywhere - regardless of
    background noise levels. Others find that
    wireless keyboards and mouses, or even a second
    screen, are integral to their efficiency.

3. Lean on your community
  • One of the major myths surrounding remote work is
    that people who dont work in a corporate office
    are lonely. To make sure that youre feeling
    supported and connected to the real world, we
    recommend becoming a part of a remote community -
    either virtually or in-person at a local cowering
    space or collective. Weve found that being
    surrounded by others who are successfully working
    remotely inspires beginners to stay the course
    and remain productive while embracing location
    flexibility.

4. Consider your workspace
  • Set yourself up for success in a place where you
    can focus on the tasks at hand. Whether this
    means you find a great coworking space near you,
    stake out a local coffee shop or create a
    designated spot for work at home, make sure that
    you feel motivated by your environment and ready
    to tackle whatever comes your way.

5. Figure out your working style
  • At the start of your remote work journey, its a
    great idea to figure out the environment that you
    need to work successfully. For example, do you
    like being surrounded by white noise? A café may
    be the best choice for you. Work well in silence?
    It might be time to invest in some
    noise-canceling headphones. Other things to
    consider are whether youre more productive in
    the morning or in the evening and whether youre
    motivated by taking small breaks throughout the
    day or a longer midday respite. This is the
    beauty of remote work - getting to work during
    your best hours, whatever they may be.

6. Take time for self-care
  • When the line between work and home starts to
    blur, you might find yourself stuck to your
    computer screen for a longer period of time (see
    next point). While that can sometimes be
    necessary when closing a major deal or finalizing
    an important presentation, give yourself time
    for, well, you. Commit to your fitness routine
    and make sure that youre creating blocks in your
    schedule to eat healthy, nutritious meals so that
    you can be focused and productive when you need
    to be.
  • The benefits of remote work can stretch into your
    life outside of work as well. With increased
    flexibility, you can take time to make sure
    youre not missing lifes important moments. As a
    remote worker, you can take care of your kids
    without worrying about leaving the office during
    standard business hours, you can decide to work
    from any location around the world and you can
    even book that doctors appointment youve been
    putting off because it didnt work with your
    schedule.

7. Know when to log off
  • This can be one of the most challenging aspects
    for remote work beginners, as the world is
    becoming increasingly connected. Though you may
    receive emails and chat notifications at any hour
    (especially if youre working in a different time
    zone than your coworkers), its important to
    develop a habit of setting a time when you
    officially log off for the night. The best part
    of working remotely is having the flexibility to
    work when you are most productive, so be careful
    about setting the standard that you are available
    24/7.

8. Embrace the perks of working remotely
  • Working remotely doesnt just apply to those who
    would work from home or in the same region as
    their companys office. If its possible with
    your current position, take your talent on the
    road! On Remote Year, employees, freelancers, and
    entrepreneurs work from places like Hanoi, Kuala
    Lumpur, Cape Town, Lisbon, and Mexico City - all
    while enjoying the support of an incredible
    community.
  • Now that youre working remotely, life will look
    a little bit different (and a little more
    awesome). However, if you rely on the eight tips
    that weve listed above, the transition from to
    the freedom of a flexible work style will be
    smooth and successful.
