Irene Lidia here, writing to you from a coworking space in the Canary Islands 🇮🇨, surrounded by the familiar buzz that anyone who's ever worked in one will recognize.
When I first stepped into a coworking space, I'll admit I was a bit overwhelmed. Would I be able to concentrate? How would I handle the constant activity around me? It turns out, the secret is in how you use the space.
Finding your rhythm in a coworking space is key—it's about knowing when to join in and when to step back.
It's about striking a balance. Some days, the energy around you will fuel your productivity. On other days, you'll need to carve out a quiet spot for yourself. And that's perfectly fine.
If you're someone who gets easily distracted, set your boundaries. A pair of headphones can be your best friend, signaling to others that you're in the zone and not up for a chat.
Don't overlook the biggest benefit of these spaces, though: the community. The chance to bump into someone with a fresh perspective or a new friend with insights you hadn't considered, is invaluable.
Every conversation could lead to a new idea, a solution you hadn't thought of, or a partnership that might change your business.
So, embrace the coworking experience with an open mind. Use the energy when it works for you, find quiet when you need it, and always be ready for those unexpected, serendipitous encounters.
Catch you in the next coworking space!
