    Keeping your blogging/work separate from your personal life can be challenging, but if you set rules for you and your family you should be able to achieve it better.

      This is very true, sadly I look after my dad and he is the kind of old person who believes the world should revolve around him 24 hours a day. 😛


    I have a hard time writing in places that I am not comfortable with. Nothing beats the comfort of my office at home. No one would tell me that it’s time to go home as the building is about to close for the working hours and the best part is I am my own boss.

    I have always felt that a well organized ‘home office’ is very important. It can be difficult to get into the mindset that is a workplace initially. Adjustment by the family members if any is also important and that they respect your working space and time. Getting your priorities straight from the beginning is also critical. Develop a strategy and plan of action to be deployed at various stages if need be.

      Yes, developing a cute strategy can help you work from home and achieve success. It may not be easy, but with patience and consistent reminder of the core things in life and business (happiness and fortune), you’ll succeed. Thanks for commenting

    Distractions are very common, particularly in the home environment. That’s why it helps to set manageable and attainable goals and manage your time affectively with a schedule. That way you can stay focused on the task at hand and plan ahead.
