#1: It's About Not Wasting Time Travelling
How many of you wished that your office is nearer to your home? And, how many of you would like to work at home/ a cafe or a co-working space, if you have a choice? In today's world, any location could be a potential workplace - and this could include working from your own mobile phone!
It's no surprise that so long there is internet connection, we could get some work done.
Studies have shown that employees who work from home are actually more productive than those who commute to office. Can you list some reasons in the comment box why working from home is better for you?
#2: It's About Working For Yourself
This is tricky...
Working for yourself does not mean giving up on your job. It just means how to...
a) prioritise to get your work done;
b) blend creativity and data-work together; and
c) learn how to build your dreams along the way.
With time to come, there will be more and more (and more) articles and videos posting talking about doing something for yourself -- this includes doing something that you like, that you are passionate about and creating something of value to the marketplace. There is always something deep within you which you have that adds value to the society. So, use a coworking space to learn as much skills as possible, network with as many new friends as possible and do your selling as many times as possible!
#3: It's About Giving AND Receiving
Are you a better giver or a better receiver? Wait a minute... if your answer is a 'better giver', please read this article first.
Coworking space in its essence is to help one another to succeed. The keyword is: helping one another.
In order to help each other to grow, there will be a lot of giving - in terms of sharing of knowledge, resources, experience, skills, etc to help the other person to grow and succeed.
Likewise, there will also involve a lot of receiving - whereby, coworkers will ask for help, feedback, ideas, suggestions, favours, etc on the stuff that they lack in order for them to move on to the next step.
A coworking space is ideal when all coworkers participate at a 100% to help themselves and their fellow coworkers to achieve success. And, this is what we aim to do here at The Success Factory Malaysia.
Please feel free to comment and send us your thoughts on this. I would love to hear from you.
