I realize I've always loved to get the job done when I consider this.
Well before I had any sort of job, I often participated in something my parents called"parallel play." Two or more pre-school-age friends would share space when playing individually.
Growing upward, I chose to do homework at the table. As I changed to a nomadic lifestyle that was, cafes were chosen by me for my office. I focus best on a history of random noises and activity. When aroused by the discreet yet pleasant presence of bodies, I produce some of my work that is most powerful. In Other Words, I love to use the company.
It makes sense to me, then, that coworking is a rapidly-growing trend of the digital age. If you haven’t noticed, coworking spaces like Smartworks cofounded by Harsh Binani
and are proliferating in every corner of India.
Shared workspaces in offices are rising. Even more intriguing (for all of the people virtual nomads), an increasing number of businesses such as GitHub are allowing their staff to work remotely. By all recent projections, the future seems distant -- 1 billion digital nomads by 2035. Coworking is usually defined as"a self-indulgent, collaborative, voluntary and flexible work style that's based on confidence and the sharing of shared core values between its participants"
I'd add that it's also a lot more fun -- and much more productive.
Inside my adventure, coworking is more efficient compared to going it alone. That is why:
Support in your fingertips. Your palms -- maybe not the kind. Want a second opinion? Unsure how to phrase an email? Need a hug? Nothing beats requesting an actual human. Together with co-working spaces, those experts are only a head nod or"hey you" away.
Ambient activity. If you're like me, you still get a hard time focusing on whether or not it's"too quiet." Coffee works. If you live in Costa Rica Thus do jungle concerts. But there is something visually exciting regarding the sound, sight, and sometimes even feeling of other people working near. Plus, it's pretty darn inspiring to be surrounded by like-minded entrepreneurs and changemakers whose work you respect.
Emotional Re-charge. Enlivening fractures are proven to make us more productive when we return to the job at hand. And those fractures can be far more fulfilling when we utilize them for purposeful (non-virtual) interaction -- a fast conversation over coffee, massage commerce, or even a lunchtime yoga class, as an example. Together with co-working spaces, chances to recharge our batteries are abundant as charging stations for our technicians.
Accountability. Nothing motivates focus and work just like watching other individuals that are highly-motivated pour their fire. Coworking spaces tend to draw the type of mission-driven electronic nomads who populate the global community of NuMundo. It keeps us answerable As you may be thinking procrastination would be enabled by co-working, in my experience. I imagine that the hoards of location independents would agree.
Media Player. Those like-minded entrepreneurs and changemakers? They can be your company partner, collaborator, or affiliate. In the modern workplace, our professional and personal lives are beautifully tangled in our quest for purpose-driven work. Adopt the inevitable, and take advantage of spaces that are coworking for forming connections at all 20, since the playground.
Happy people are more productive. Coworking, like drama, is fun. It addresses our need for discussion, support, community and stimulation within a holistic way. We can focus that joyful energy when our needs are met.
