Since I am a work at home mom/freelance writer, here are some I can think of right now: 1) Set a certain number of hours or maybe amount that would be your goal for a certain day and work towards attaining that goal. 2) Try to avoid distractions during the set number of hours you are bent on attaining. 3) Once you have reached your goal, you can now do your other chores or if you're having a break in between, don't let the lazy bug bite you to stop your work. 4) It takes a lot of determination and willpower to succeed in working from home because there's always the temptation to procrastinate -- afterall, you ARE at home. Still, if you know your direction, and know how to get there, I see no problem in the offing. If you'll be needing some work-at-home links, you can check out my blog on my profile and follow me for updates. See you around!

Thank you so much! I'm trying to schedule my work in certain hours but sometimes multitasking is bit hard to break. (you know doing work and chores at the same time) This time, if it's time for work, it's time for work. Thanks for your advice. ;)

Don't try to do something when you don't feel like it because it won't turn out as good as it could be if you were in the mood to do it.
