This is the first blog post I have written from my new office.
I will have some pictures online soon and I may even do a video tour but at the moment the place is upside down with boxes everywhere so I’ll wait till I’m all set up before I do that. My office is situated 9 floors high right in the heart of Sunderland City center only 10 minutes away from home.
This is my third day in my office and I must tell you I wish I had done this years ago. The main reason is because I come here to work so my mindset is different, there are no distractions and I can get a lot more done. In fact I have only put in about 6-8 hours real work so far this week and I have gotten more done than I would have done in a week at home.
Of course I know having an office isn’t for everyone and it also depends where you are at with your business but let me tell you when you work from home you are never away from ‘work’ and it’s all too easy to check your pc. You know…
- I’ll just check my emails.
- I’ll just check my sales
- I’ll just check the Warrior Forum
Let me tell you my computers at home were turned on for around 15 hours per day. Now this is not the case. Now I ‘go to work’. As strange as that may sound (I mean aren’t we doing this to quit work) I really look forward to it everyday. I now find myself working less as I have less distractions, just give me 2-5 hours per day in a work environment and I know I will get more done.
I am also planning a lot more, in fact on Monday I am meeting up with 2 Internet Marketers in my office to plan a product launch. This was simply not possible when I worked from home. We will spend all day ‘working’ and I know we will get so much more done.
So if getting an office is something you have considered in the past let me tell you that although it’s early days this was one of the best things I have ever done. In fact this is my last ‘work’ for the day and I’m going home to spend some quality time with my family. I’ll be back in around 18 hours time and won’t see a PC till then…
… which is brilliant 🙂
