I’m having to work from my friends house today because my floors at home are currently being sanded (poor me, how awful). It made me think that although working from home is amazing, it comes with many distractions. For a start you’ve got a constant reminder that your house is a mess and you should really tidy it, there’s washing to do, cleaning to do and don’t even get me started on the pile of clothes on my bedroom floor. But you have to ignore all these as you’re at “work” and so shouldn’t be doing “home” things. Some days I wish I could work from a studio near my home but it’s just not an option right now. That is my long term goal though, to be able to have a space a short walk away where I can go and immerse myself into my work….that’s the dream.
I have to say that I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into setting up my own business, I just went for it and dealt with each hurdle as I came across them. I’ve learnt so much since the first day I sat down and began dreaming about greetings cards. In order to achieve anything you must set yourself goals, otherwise you just plod along without realising how much time has gone by. The goals need to be realistic and when you reach them you should applaud yourself.
My goal for today was to write this blog post, well done me.
