I always wanted to work from home. Isn't it great to stay the whole day in pajamas and be able to have a nap in the middle of the working day or go for a walk and work from the park? It is. But there is a big enemy of productivity - Miss Procrastination! Why not to make a coffee with cinnamon and cream? Oh, look, old photos, let's sort them out. Oh! Somebody liked my post or commented my drawing on facebook! Etc. I guess you know what i mean. Here is my secret weapon against the mighty procrastination!
It's pretty easy. I've set up the timer for 45 minutes and during this 45 minutes i do only work. I switch off the internet, i don't answer the phone, i just work (even if aliens decide to conquer London, i would not bother, i'm working!). After this 45 minutes i make a break of 15 minutes, i make coffee, i answer emails, i write my blog, or i go to buy some biscuits to stretch my legs. And then again - the same thing: 45 minutes work, 15 minutes break.

And you can't imagine, how productive you can be in this 45 minutes without internet and real world. So i wish you good luck and i hope my tiny secret will help you! Let me know your secrets, if you have some - firstname.lastname@example.org. And i'm back to work! My 15 minutes break is over.
