The demand for coworking spaces is growing at an exponential rate, with more than 1 million people utilising these areas worldwide. In fact, 75% of start-ups are now based in coworking areas. With flexible workspace solutions on the rise, it is important to understand how you can take full advantage of your coworking office!
Creating your own office space
Personalising your desk within a communal setting is proven to increase productivity by 25%. Simply using your own coffee cup paired with statement stationary and a live plant will ensure every moment you spend at your coworking desk is productive.
Apply the Pomodoro technique to increase productivity
Office distractions come in many forms; mobile phones, social media, personal calls or even a casual conversation among colleagues. Fight the urge to become distracted by applying the Pomodoro technique. This technique states that for every 25 minutes of constant work, you should take a quick break. During this moment of rest, you are encouraged to get a coffee, go for a short walk, or catch up on any distractions that occurred during the previous 25 minutes of work. Once the break is over, begin another 25 minutes of uninterrupted work. This useful technique minimises distractions while keeping you focused on those valuable 25 minutes of work.
Take full advantage of the boundless networking opportunities
Sometimes, all it takes to become inspired is to surround yourself with other creative, like-minded people. With an abundance of networking and socialising events for your business to benefit from expanding your business network, but can also create potential opportunities for collaboration.
