It’s important to start by stressing that there’s no one right or wrong way to establish your work from home practices and environment. What works for some people may not work for others. Some people like utter silence, while others thrive in a buzzing atmosphere. It’s also worth noting that it can take some time to fall into a groove with working from home. If it feels unnatural or awkward at first, don’t be surprised – this is the stage where many prematurely decide working from home isn’t for them.
Small changes can make a significant difference in the quality of your experience though, and any effort you put toward improving that experience is well spent. It’s equally important for employers to grant employees who are new to remote work a little extra slack as they learn the ropes. As you embark together on this WFH journey, please remember to show some extra patience for technical difficulties, kids or pets in the background, and a little general disarray at first. It will get better. With that in mind, I’m going to cover a broad range of strategies, tips, and techniques for getting your best work done at home.
This post is separated into 3 parts and is about that inevitable journey of late, for many people …of taking your vocation home with you. And the difficulty of trying to adapt to running it from your new home office, with all its distractions, but not all necessarily bad ones though. Ive always said ; “letting one daydream occasionally”… Is imperative to ones creativity as an artist or designer or creator of vision. The mind needs to declutter and renew.
Working from home is a skill that you can really only hone through a combination of your own trial and error, and by implementing the advice of others who have been doing it for a while.
There are countless factors that impact the Working from Home (WFH) experience. Small details can make or break your experience — some of which won’t even impact you until the medium or long-term. Through those decades of combined WFH experience, some organisations already amassed a pretty sizeable number of tools and strategies to make it easier. While some of those tactics might work perfectly for some, they’re not always going to fit — and that’s where your part begins. It would be a lie to say this is going to be an easy journey, or that reading this post is going to leave you fully equipped to overcome every one of the new challenges you’re going to face. You’re already walking down the road though, so you might as well bring a some sort of guide. (that be this post) see part 2
Of course, you need to make a balance between user’s wish list and your business objectives. See how your work is putting value to your business? Whether the effort you put to build your design is worth what it costs?
Always answer these questions before moving forward with your client. Analise the requirements keeping in view your business needs.
2/. It is very important to satisfy your user — the client who will be using your product. Never try to impose your likes and dislikes on your design. You are not designing for yourself. Always work with your user and get his feedback to create the best possible solution. An extensive observation of your user while working on a project is an essential key to become a UX designer. Meet them, talk to them and see their working environment. Relate the problem to the daily life situations of your users and see how they handle them. This helps you to discover their actual needs and the way they want to meet them. Collect your findings and now think of the design you want to build for them. Believe me, this makes a lot of difference!
Below is a set of skills that makes you a passionate UX designer. These skills are truly simple to learn and adopt in your design process.
A must skill for UX designers is to do research, and do it at all the time. Keep yourself up to date with latest trends. Spend the maximum time you can to explore upcoming designs, techniques and tools in your field. Always compare the knowledge that you are attaining each day and see how quickly things are evolving. (Usually very quickly) Its a great feeling when all that research and effort clicks, and falls into place.
