How to work from home

How to work from home

Matthew Stibbe at his blog Bad Language talks about his tips on working from home. Compared to his big office, he said working from home has its advantage and freedom, but there are couple of things that need to be taken care of:

  • Separate phone and fax.
  • Keep work and home separate.
  • Stay green.
  • Office stuff.
  • Business class IT.
  • Everywhere is your office.
  • Be businesslike.
  • Be like a small big business.
  • Build your network.
  • Insurance and tax.

Highlight from me would be the section on “build your network”. Matthew talks about his choice on getting free agents to scale his business instead of hiring a lot of employees. However finding good contractors is as hard as recruiting/training the right person.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
