Remote Workers Daily Routine

Since starting to work from home, I've made a purposeful effort to put good practices into place. I view working from home as a privilege, not a right, and I need to make the most of it if I am to be successful and integrate it as part of a successful business model. One of those good practices is a schedule. It's a work in progress, but here is mine so far.

Wake up. Leave the alarm at least ten feet from the bed, in the direction of the bathroom, so I have to get up and am not tempted to fall back in bed
