5 best practice for remote work:
Schedule your time to align with working time zone
If you are working outside your time zone, then you should always have it in the back of your mind that your work operates from a time zone outside the one you are living in. And this can be very confusing for many if they don’t properly align their realities and timing to your work environment.
I believe those are the criteria you get for taking an international job. Your effort is needed when work starts for them and your time zone will not be an excuse. Get a clock or set out a different clock, alarms and reminders that work towards reminding and directing you to complete tasks based on your work time zone.
Always outline goals for the day
It is important to always write down the goals or tasks you wish to achieve for the day first thing in the morning or the night before you go to bed.
What this does is, show you everything you need to be up to date or at speed with work. Having this will avoid you confusion and give you direction since there is no boss to tell you what to do next.
