    Do you have some kind of daily routine to get on track? I'm starting to work remotely later this year and i'd like to know some best practices and experiences. Any secrets to share?

    And btw, i have all offscreen issues. Bought the ones i was missing directly from you on last BeyondTellerand in Germany. I love your magazine! <3

      Thanks very much for being such a loyal reader!

      I've talked about my daily routines in this blog post.

      I find that breaking up my day in 2-3 chunks and my week in 2-3 different types of days helps. At the moment I tend to get up at around 6.30-7am and after a quick breakfast I'm going straight to a café for a coffee and 3-4 hours of work. Then back home for lunch, more work, then a run, and some more light work afterwards.

      Two days a week I usually spend at a shared office with friends and colleagues. That way I get some socialising in and I don't feel like a complete loner. It's also a good way to be (positively) distracted so that I can get some fresh perspectives.

      Having said that, I go through phases too. In winter I tend to stay more at home, and in summer I love going for a bike ride to the office early in the morning. :)
