(upbeat music) - Hey, I'm Dave Crenshaw. I'm an instructor at LinkedIn Learning. I'm at their studio in Carpinteria, California. But most of the time, I work from home. And if you work from home like me, you'll recognize that it's a blessing 'cause you got all that freedom and flexibility. But it can also be a challenge to manage your time and have a good balance with work and life. That's why we put together a course called Time Management: Working from Home.
And if I were to share with you a couple of key takeaways that you can implement immediately. The first would be to establish a boundary line in your day. You know, a lot of people work as long as it takes to get the job done. And while hard work is good, you also want to create a healthy balance by designating a clear start time and a clear finish time. And then have that as recurring schedule in your day. Another tip would be to establish clear physical boundaries in your workspace.
You know, some people, they like to work, when they're working from home, they work in their bed, or they work on a couch. But instead, you want to create a clear marker, an invisible wall, so to speak, of where you're going to do your work. And when you step into that space, you are in work mode and you want to focus on work. And when you step out of that space, you want to leave work behind and focus on just being you and enjoying spending time with loved ones. So this is a course that is based on about 20 years of experience of me working at home and coaching top executives around the world.
And I want to share some of these principles with you. Please check the course out. (upbeat music)
