As we celebrate the Lenten season, we can still be productive while honouring our traditions. After all, it might be your only time to free yourself from all the busyness. Why not just invest your time to further your remote working career?
And here are 5 things you can do to improve your career during Holy week as a remote worker.
Read a Book
When was the last time you read a book? For some of us, never. It might be a good time to start.
Books are great tools to learn from other people’s experiences and expertise without going through trial and error. Would you rather formulate the laws of leadership yourself or just read John Maxwell’s leadership book?
Your newfound learnings will surely propel you to greater heights in your remote working career.
Take New Courses
We should upgrade our skills to stay relevant in this remote working market. More and more skills are easily accessible for a few bucks or even for free.
You might have the time to enrol in some online courses to supplement your craft for your clients. Here are reliable websites for learning remote working and freelancing skills. With the newfound expertise, you might even charge higher because you can give more value to your clients.
Follow Thought Leaders in Your Field
Ever wanted a mentor to guide your career? Why not follow thought leaders in your field during this free time? You can look for their blogs and videos so that you can be updated when new trends come out.
You can also join Facebook groups, Reddit threads, or even Quora. Here are some you can check out on remote working.
With this, you are sure to be up-to-date directly from the experts on the things you should watch out for in your career.
Reflect on Your Passion
Remote working allows us to have more time for the things that matter most. It might be for your family or passion projects. But have you thought about your passion projects lately?
It might be the time to pinpoint what you really want during the Holy week. Think about the things that you want to pursue in life.
Even if it’s not related to your job right now, if you are holding onto something bigger than yourself, you will be more productive not only in your passion but also in your current remote work as well.
You want to be productive, right? Why rest, you say? Do not be afraid to rest.
With how hectic our schedule is, sometimes all we need to do is rest. Proper rest can relax your mind and body to be prepared for the coming workdays.
It’s like a reset. With a refreshed being after a restful vacation, watch how you become more productive in the working days to come.
The Holy week is the time to reflect on our life. But there’s no one stopping you from making it productive. And rest counts as one productivity hack for this time. So have a solemn Holy week! Can’t wait to see your progress when you get back to hustling afterwards. Cheers!
