What is your best work-from-home tip?

If you work from home, what is your best sanity-saving tip? What do you do or what do you use - to balance work, kids, spouses, houses, school/homeschool/continuing education, community responsibilities ... life in general?

I use a hodge-podge of resources like FlyLady's routines, the Pomodoro Technique and sheduling blocks of time for specific areas (i.e. homeschooling, work, spiritual). I'd love to compare notes and see where I can improve! =)

  • @Alyssa I figured that out the hard way: I *was* all over the place! It was hard to feel any sense of peace or direction until I started taking my calendar seriously. =)

    @IraqiVetWife Action is definitely a requirement for anything. Even choosing to do nothing or wait is an action. I can't remember who came up with "Just Do It!" but it's something I repeat to myself when I feel like I'm chickening out or losing faith. LOL
