You cannot enjoy comfort and flexibility in home-based medical transcription service unless you are a disciplined transcription service provider. And it is really not easy to be disciplined when you have several distractions and temptations around. So, how do you make sure you are disciplined while working form home? Here are some easy-to-follow tips.
Work only in the office space. You have got to have an office at home. You cannot expect to work on the couch or on the bed and do well in your transcription service. Irrespective of whether you have a desktop or a laptop, get yourself a proper office table and a chair and set up your own office space. Make sure this office is noise-free and secluded.
Have a routine. Work like you would work in an office. Do not work as and when you feel like working. Fix your working hours and work only during those hours. A routine will help your efficiency and productivity increase.
Don’t work beyond your working hours. Discipline requires that you treat your personal life with respect too. Don’t let your work take over your life. Try not to work any time other than the hours you have fixed.
Try to make good use of any ‘leftover’ working hours. On some days, you may not have enough work to occupy all your working hours. It is important you use these spare hours wisely by enhancing your medical knowledge.
