When your working days become regimented, you try to find ways to break the routine. You might find yourself staring at the wall, playing on your phone, or doing anything you can to avoid sitting at your desk for another minute. If this scenario describes your work life right now, you can adopt a cloud setup to optimise your work hours so you become more productive.
Adopting a cloud computing setup means you can take back your freedom. You’re no longer required in the office every single day. Take a day to work from home if you think it could be beneficial to your productivity. If working from home doesn’t suit you, then grab your laptop and work from a local library so you’re still out of the house but you’re not sat behind the same desk.
Sometimes, our peak hours aren’t 9-5. You may work best early in the morning or late at night. You’d be working from a hosted desktop so you can log on at any time and have full access to files and applications. A cloud setup allows you to be more flexible with your working hours and really squeeze every last drop out of your day.
Saving work to a local desktop means it’s only available on that device. It also means your work isn’t protected because of the risk of the device breaking or being stolen or lost. You can always save a copy of your work to a USB stick but in 2018 that’s borderline archaic. Think about how many you’ve lost over the years.
Instead, save one live version of the truth to your hosted desktop. This way, no matter what Internet-enabled device you’re using, you can access the latest version and keep working on the move.
