TIPS ON HOW TO STAY PRODUCTIVE THIS SUMMER!
Beach vacations, Cookouts, Afternoon storms and boat days are upon us. But, reality is that even though school is out for the summer, work still has to get done! The show must still go on. It's so easy to get side tracked in the slowness and excitement of summer. However, this time of year is just as important to get ready to execute your plans for the next season. While we understand that manning the grill and getting comment-worthy tan lines are important, don’t let the distractions of summer be a setback for all that you’ve accomplished this year.
So, how do you strike the balance between pool/beach time and productivity? Coworking. Don’t do yourself the disservice of trying to work from home or boring yourself in the corporate office. Here are our top five reasons why you should be coworking this summer:
1| A vacation from your (home) office.
We know the pain. You’re two weeks into summer break and the kids are already throwing off your daily routine. From suiting up for a day at the pool to endless nagging about inviting every kid in the neighborhood over for a slip-n-slide, the distractions seem to never end and you quickly realize a trip to the Bahamas isn’t the only vacation you’ll need this summer. Or maybe you find yourself in need of an inspiring change of pace from your drab corporate cubicle. Escape the disruptions of home life and office boredom and retreat to our productivity focused coworking environment. Designed with you in mind, our space is intentionally crafted to offer a variety of work settings that accommodate both the heads-down projects and the conversation-welcome brainstorm sessions, allowing you to get your best work done on any given workday. Business class WiFi, printing services and complimentary coffee+tea provide an all-inclusive experience to keep your work flow fueled and focused. Consider this the vacation that doesn’t have to end.
2| A multiplied team of “coworkers.”
While your teammates drain their stockpiled PTO, summer workdays can feel a bit lonely. Don’t let their absence keep you from the benefits of collaborating with others. Instead build your team with the addition of our workplace community. Even in a productive environment, it’s easy to catch yourself daydreaming about weekend plans or an upcoming trip, but working alongside the hustle of other members serves as a natural source of accountability and grit. And when you receive an automated “Out-of-office” reply, a coLAB coworking membership allows you to draw on a consistent community of professionals to serve as your sounding board and temporary coworker.
3| A convenient way to work.
Summer schedules can often be spontaneous, keeping you on the go. Rather than limiting yourself to a single environment, desk, or office, give yourself the flexibility and option to work in any part of coLAB's 3500 sq ft. With our 5 skylights, natural lights, real plants and open style seating in the work lounge , there are plenty of options to choose where to work. You can even opt in to use our private work booths, podcast / private meeting room, or other meeting and workshop rooms.
4| A wealth of knowledge at your fingertips.
Trendy podcasts and self-help articles don’t have to be your poolside entertainment. Leverage our community of professionals and entrepreneurs to access a unique variety of skillsets, talents and expertise that can be applied to your business. Offering more than just an opportunity for personal development, our invested community and team are eager to provide buy-in and perspectives to help recalibrate your priorities for the remainder of 2019. As they say, a rising tide lifts all boats. Experience how mutually-beneficial relationships and genuine comradery at coLAB push us all to achieve new heights of success.
5| A fun break (because summer is supposed to be fun).
Summer break isn’t just for kids. While we may not have the luxury of two months of PTO, we think workdays could use a serious injection of fun. Which is why our teams plan member events throughout the summer as an opportunity for you to take a break from emails and socialize with other members. Whether its enjoying Social Club or Market Night, or Workshops, indoors with others in the community, it is energizing and refreshing to do something different before having to return to your to-do list. Not only will your sanity thank you for the mental break, your team will also benefit from your renewed sense of creativity and innovation.
