Remote Working Essentials
Here at Cone, we are 100% remote workers.
And as it happens, so are a lot of our clients.
In fact, most of our clients do not do all of their work in the office.
So we wanted to share our essentials for taking your office anywhere.
But of course, the computer must make a list.
I don't know anyone that could work from anywhere and not have a laptop of some kind.
The one thing I do want to mention here though is to ensure that your computer is secure and you have a way of locking it in the event of theft or loss.
Now although we are paperless, there is a lot to be said about a journal.
No matter whether that is physical or digital.
You can use it to sketch out or write down ideas.
You can use it to work through problems by brain dumping all that is going on in your mind.
You can use it to plan out the execution of plans. As a content creator for Cone, I like to sketch out our Instagram feed before I actually create.
Or I love to map out flat lays so I have a tonne of ideas when the opportunity arises.
A Good Pair Of Earphones
I seriously recommend investing in a great pair of earphones.
You can use them for client calls for added privacy (no one can overhear what the other person is saying).
You can use them to increase your focus. So, for example, you can play music or nature sounds.
Which brings me to the idea that you can use them for meditation and visualisation exercises.
You can use them to learn by listening to podcasts or suitable books when you are commuting or working out.
Water and Snacks
You never want to be hungry when you are working, so I suggest packing a bottle of water and a snack bar.
This will prevent you from going hangry.
So to sum up our list. Our essentials are:
• A journal (and pen).
• A good pair of earphones.
•Water and a snack.
It's all pretty light really!
Optional extras would include things like antibacterial gel, tissues, mints and a facial spray. For others, a camera may be something you need or another item that is specific to your industry.
But we wanted to share the basics so you can start your checklist!
