The determination to get back is important. Because when you get distracted by other things. You lost some of it. And if you want to work back and get things. Then, work on getting the determination. Sometimes I get it by watching and reading about other successful people.

  8. Such a great topic to bring to discussion! We would think that working from home would make life a lot easier but there are some details that we need to be on the lookout for - distractions are surely one of them. Thanks for sharing these tips and for being open about your own experience. What I personally struggle the most with is when people whom we share the house with interrupt non-stop. It can be difficult to set clear boundaries, but also much needed.
