Working from home sounds like the thrill of a lifetime. There’s no commute, slow easy mornings, and you can even work in your pajamas. But, working from home is only really a thrill if you are the only one home! Add a spouse, kids, pets, and delivery people into the mix and it’s a recipe for disaster. Every minute could literally spell the difference between success and failure.
Managing your night is more important than your days
One simple tip for having a more relaxed day at the home office is to prepare as much as possible the night before. Take the time in the evening when it’s quiet to scrutinise your schedule and deal with any conflicts, that way you’ll find your daytime to be far less stressful. There’s nothing worse than realizing you have an important sales call, at the same time as your kid’s Zoom class, and right when the groceries are scheduled to be delivered.
Meeting preparation is critical for the success of every meeting, and at Calendar.AI we help you prepare for those meetings with one tap. Featured within every single calendar invite, are enriched user insights with a full profile of the people and companies you meet with.
Granted you’ve probably reviewed your meeting schedule the night before, but a little refresher course never hurt anybody. Now you can show up with talking points to help foster a positive and upbeat atmosphere, which frankly during Corona, everyone could really use.
More than just a calendar
Calendar.AI also enables you to block out all the time you need to manage your personal life as well. Smart scheduling means no double booking when something else or someone else at home might need your attention. Need a 30 minute break to stretch your legs and walk around outside in the fresh air? Lock it into your smart calendar and it’s yours.
If you are managing a team spread across a range of time zones and schedules, finding the right slot for that team meeting can be a real pain. Meeting polls are just what the doctor ordered to save you from a literal endless cycle of emails trying to work out what time suits everyone. Now everyone provides input and you schedule the meeting at the most convenient time for all participants.
Any successful working environment requires a reduction in stress levels and your home is no different. If anything it’s worse because the sometimes natural stress of home life can be left out of the office, while now it is right there with you. So take a walk, prepare beforehand, stay organized, and of course, use your Calendar.AI app to keep on top of everything!
