Forced to Return to the Office? 3 Concrete Ways to Fight for Your Location Independence

 

If you’re one of the many people who are being forced to return to the office against their will, there are a few things you can do to make the best of the situation. First, try to create a positive mindset for yourself. Remind yourself that it’s only temporary and that you’ll be able to appreciate your time at home all the more when it’s over. Second, take advantage of the opportunities that working in an office environment provides. Use your lunch break to socialize with colleagues, or take advantage of the company’s gym membership. Finally, make sure to schedule regular check-ins with your supervisor to ensure that you’re on the same page and that your needs are being met. By following these tips, you can make the most out of a difficult situation and come out stronger on the other side. If you do not want to return to the office and still have location freedom, implement these 3 things immediately…

1. Start Applying for Remote Jobs

So you’ve finally reached the end of your rope with your current remote job because they are forcing you to return to the office. Congratulations! You’ve officially become a millennial cliche. Now it’s time to start looking for another one. The first step is to update your resume. Be sure to include all of the relevant keywords that will help you get found in a search. Then, start scouring the internet for job postings. Indeed, LinkedIn, and even Facebook can be great places to find leads.
Next, reach out to your network. Let everyone know that you’re on the hunt for a new gig. You never know who might have a lead or be able to connect you with someone who does. Finally, don’t forget to brush up on your interviewing skills. After all, you’ll need to sell yourself if you want to land the job.

2. Start an Online Business or Side Hustle

Starting an online business is a great way to take control of your career and set your own hours. But before you quit your day job and start posting on Instagram, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, it’s important to have a clear vision for your business. What are your goals and objectives? What can you offer that is unique and valuable? Once you have a good understanding of your brand, you can start to build an online presence. This means creating social media accounts, a website, and other marketing materials. You should also start networking with other entrepreneurs to get some tips and advice. Finally, don’t forget to create a budget and stick to it. With careful planning and execution, you can turn your side hustle into a successful business.

3. Become Overemployed

What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means you now have more work than you can possibly handle with two (2) remote jobs which constantly running around like a chicken with its head cut off. But don’t worry, there are some things you can do to make the most of this situation. First of all, try to stay calm and organized. This may seem impossible at first, but if you can make a list of everything that needs to be done and tackle one task at a time, you’ll be surprised at how much you can get accomplished. Secondly, delegate tasks to others whenever possible. If you’re lucky enough to have colleagues or friends who are willing to help out, take advantage of that and offload some of the work onto them. Finally, learn to say no. This is probably the most important tip of all. When you’re already stretched thin, it’s tempting to say yes to every new project that comes your way. But if you want to avoid burning out, it’s important to know your limits and stick to them. Keep in mind, being overemployed can provide you with the benefit of letting go the remote job forcing people to return to the office and keep the other. It provides you with options that are normally not possible.

Location independence is a hot topic and for good reason. It can be the key to unlocking a life of freedom and flexibility. But it’s not always easy to achieve, especially if you don’t have the support system in place or working with employers that do not want to be flexible anymore.
