Telecommute Success: Find Your Creative Zone

Posted by Valencia on January 25th, 2008

Is there a space in your home that seems to spark creativity? I have one…well actually two. I don’t know what it is about my bedroom, but I can work for hours and create quality content fast.

Before buying a laptop, I wrote primarily in our home office. Although the room included all the essentials - work desk, file cabinets, computer, printer, etc - it just didn’t work for me. Besides, the room’s location was a hotbed for distractions. I’m a little nosy, and since the room faces the street, I would watch my neighbors leave for work, mow their yards, walk their dogs, and so on. Plus, I like to keep the windows open when the weather’s warm, and the sound of children playing breaks my concentration.

Fortunately, I’ve discovered my work zone - or shall I say “creative zone.” It’s the place where I feel the most inspired and imaginative. Consequently, the ideas emerge and I’m able to accomplish much - whether it’s morning, noon, or night.

Every telecommute professional needs to find their zone. It doesn’t have to be an actual location, but rather a time of day. For example, Addicted to Writing author Opal Tribble accomplishes a lot of her work before sunrise. Other work at home mothers may likewise feel the most productive before the children awaken. The house is normally calm, and it’s the perfect time to look for job leads, finish assignments, or get a head start on the day.

I work best in my office or sitting on the couch. But, I’ve learned to adapt and I can pretty much work anywhere - in the car, on a plane, at the library, in my kitchen, at a cafe, etc… Yes, I have a crazy schedule sometimes!

I’ve also worked at the library a few times. At first I didn’t know if I would be able to concentrate, but it worked out well. I’ll go whenever I need a change of scenery.

I crave those quiet moments in the early morning. Fortunately for myself I naturally awaken by 3:30. I’m able to complete a lot of work. After she awakens that’s my time to spend with her later in the day I’ll do finishing touches on articles and send products for my business. I’m a single mom/business owner/freelance write who is also homeschooling my daughter. Although it’s challenging I make it work.

Thanks for the link. :-)

For me it depends on the assignment. Creative blog writing - my comfy leather chair. I also run a small business, so when I’m doing inventory check or updating my website, I need to be in my office. Feeling all official-like. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that’s easily distracted by neighbors!
