How to stay focused when working from home

It’s dark, and wet. I’m carrying more things than my arms are comfortable carrying, grasping my house key between cold, numb fingers. Hunched against the cold, I open the front door prepared to step into a completely dark house… only to find that the entryway light is already on. Ah, lovely.

Then I remember that just a few days earlier I had created an IFTTT applet for this exact purpose. Don’t know what that means? Well, the short version is that through the magic of technology, my household lighting system knew I was coming home after dark and switched itself on as I approached the house.

As it turns out, when we're getting distracted by a hundred different things while trying to work at home, we can take inspiration from apps like IFTTT.
