When you work from home, you work near all your favorite distractions - your personal computer, game consoles, family, favorite snacks, and more. Plus, home just often doesn't feel like a good "work" spot. It can be hard to get started.

But what if you HAVE to work from home - like many of us do right now? In this video, I'll share a process that will help you stop procrastinating, pick a task, and stay focused on it.
