How to Work Remotely Successfully and Efficiently

Posted by Sarah Wai on Mar 6, 2020 10:53:00 AM

When I started working remotely a few years ago, I thought I had a good idea of what I was getting myself into- but man, was it a shock. Many professionals who have made this switch cold-turkey like I did understand what I’m talking about. Going from face-to-face interactions and working in a cubicle daily, to suddenly having the freedom to work from anywhere, without your coworkers in your immediate circle, is a shock, among so many other changes you experience.

I’ve learned a lot in my time as a remote professional and have learned to set myself up for success. If you are new to remote work, are considering it, or you’ve been doing it for a while but don’t feel your rhythm is sufficient, this blog is for you. I want to impart the things I’ve learned along the way to help you set yourself up for success.

“There is never a lack of subject matter; just absence of creativity.” – Lee Hammond,

Maybe you’ve never heard the term Artist’s Block, but I bet you get what it means. Yes, just like writers get writer’s block, artists experience that same creative traffic jam.

Why Working Remotely is Harder than You Think

Last year we tested, and then made official, Office Free Friday. It's been a very cool thing for us as a company because it's provided us some much-needed focus time each week where our customers expect us to be a little less available.

If you aren't interested in clicking through to that announcement link, I'll give you the simple gist here. On Fridays, we officially close our office and our phones go directly to voicemail. It's still a working day, but because the office is closed, our employees have an option to work wherever they want.

“My Brain Can’t Brain”- Improving Your Productivity

Posted by Sarah Wai on Dec 5, 2015 5:00:00 PM

As a recent college graduate, I’ve found that one of the only downsides to “real life” is sitting in a chair all day. I found when I first started my job that when 2 o’clock rolled around, I’d realize “my brain can’t brain” anymore. I quickly realized that I couldn’t keep things as they were; otherwise, I would underutilize precious time by allowing myself to lose brain power.

When I was a child and said I wanted to be a superhero when I grew up, most adults gave a little chuckle and a comment like, "Well, that’s cute."

Most people think being a superhero is not a realistic career choice, but I beg to differ. Project Management is essentially the same thing. If you are familiar at all with what the role entails, you know what I am saying.

If you're sitting at your computer right now reading this article, you're doing some serious harm to your body...not moving. And to make it worse, it's not that you're just sitting still, it may also be the way you are sitting. Are you slouching? Is your head leaning forward over your torso? According to Physiology of the Joints, Volume Three; " For every inch your head moves forward, it gains ten pounds of weight as far as the muscles in your upper back and neck are concerned." OUCH!

Enter - awkard desk stretching exercises. These humbling workplace stretches can improve flexibility, reduce pain and relieve physical and mental stress. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, "physical activity- even for a short period of time- can improve your mood."
