Christine May has worked for Edoc Service as a professional contractor for more than 4 years, and during that time, she has become an integral part of the transcriptionist team.
As a self-described morning person, Christine enjoys remote work for the flexibility it offers. Despite how she enjoys the flexible schedule, though, Christine also embraces a daily routine. To start, she gets up at 4 A.M. every day. Part of that stems from how she owned a cattle farm—and ran it by herself during the week—in Pennsylvania for 15 years.
Today, life looks different, but the nature and value of routine has stuck with her. “Every morning first thing is I get dressed, wash my face, brush my teeth, look in the mirror, smile and tell myself, ‘This is a new day, stay strong, you got this.’ Then I take all 4 of my fur babies outside. I get myself a cup of caffeine, sit at my computer, read my emails, scroll through Facebook for a short bit, and then start my day of working,” she says.
Christine explains that while so many people—like her—enjoy the benefits of remote work like the flexibility it offers, part of her formula for success comes down to daily discipline. “I would say the most important advice to others in terms of remote work is to make yourself disciplined, set a goal for yourself to reach each day, or even the week, and do your best to reach that goal,” she says.
