Tips to Be Productive at Your Shared Office

September 15, 2020

Shared office space offers a conducive environment for young startups to grow with advanced infrastructure, top talent availability, and low operational costs.

 

However, work productivity is one factor employers are concerned about as you’ll be sharing space with many other small teams. In this post, we’ve rounded up essential tips to stay productive in your coworking space.

#1 Create a Daily To-Do List

Make it a habit, before starting your day’s work, prepare a to-do list. This will hardly take a few minutes, but will considerably boost your day’s productivity. 

 

Not having a to-do list means you have no goals; it is like a soccer player who doesn’t know where the opponent’s goal post is. Knowing what to do, you’ll be less distracted and focused to accomplish the tasks. 

 

Creating your daily schedule not only makes you more productive but also ensures you don’t burn out with too much workload in a single day. And don’t forget to take regular breaks to keep your mind & body fresh for new challenges. 

#2 Connect with Coworkers Only For Productive Stuff

However, you can talk about anything, from politics to sports, during breaks. 

#3 Reward Yourself

Wherever you achieve something, a small goal or grabbing a big deal, make sure you reward the team or yourself if you’re a freelancer. 

 

This will allow you to stay productive at your workspace and even motivated to deal with bigger challenges.

#4 Maintain a Clean Workspace

An unorganized and dirty workspace is a reflection of what’s going in your mind. Even if everything is under control, a cluttered work desk may demotivate you, negatively impacting your efficiency.
