Be mobile and able

You’ll need a device that’s powerful enough to recreate your in-office productivity. Hook up your Galaxy S20 to a tool like Samsung DeX, which brings you a desktop experience powered by your phone.

Stay on cycle

When you’re remote, good time management is crucial. Try breaking your day into productivity cycles: 15 minutes of work, then 5 minutes of break. Repeat that four times, then take a 20-minute rest. Add a note-taking app like Samsung Notes and you’ll plow through your to-do list.

Work the cloud

Being able to access all of your data, apps and projects from home is key. A tool like DeX can help by making your Samsung device both your phone and your computer, meaning you don’t have to worry about which file version is on which device.

Check in with your team

Make the extra effort to send your boss a mid-day update on your progress and use Google Duo to video chat with your teammates to be sure you didn’t miss any conversations that affect your projects. Not only will this keep you connected to your work, it will also give you the face-to-face interaction you may crave when you’re working from home.
