There are some things that could be better and help your productivity just a little bit more. You're in luck—we have more home office gadgets to help.
Hopefully, you’re getting into a groove by now. You’ve figured out just when you need to get up so you can sleep in as late as possible before you have to log on. You’ve got the coffee-making and breakfast tasks timed down to the millisecond. And, luckily, you don’t have to worry about showering and getting out of your pajamas.
