The Gift of Structure
Raise your hand if you’ve worked from home any time in the last two years.
Wow, that is nearly everybody. Working from home has been the norm for millions of people while coping with changing expectations and requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also increasingly post-pandemic. Home was an alternative to private office space, shared office space, and coworking as many private offices shut down or closed for extended periods of time.
Working from home, having essentially your own virtual office space, instead of a private office or shared office space at their previous “normal” space has its own challenges: Distractions, noise, lack of privacy, new coworkers (family), lack of technology, reliable internet, etc. And that is just for the employee or worker. What about your family?
- Does your family (including pets) tiptoe around so they don’t disturb your concentration, your Zoom sessions, or your “very important” phone calls?
- Is dinner now much later because you have to get one more thing done (not to mention that your desk is the kitchen table)?
- Is your 8-hour day now more like 10 or 12 because work is always just in the next room?
- Does your house seemed confused because it doesn’t know which room is the dining room, bedroom, kitchen or office – because we are working from all of them?
This year give yourself and your family the Gift of Structure. Separate work from home life, office hours from family time and weekdays from weekends by checking out and considering using alternative locations for your work needs. There are more and more coworking and shared offices available to not just large employers, but entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and independent business owners.
Private offices offer not just privacy and a quiet place to work, but a place for your business to live. A place for you to meet clients. A place to have productive, effective time to get work done in your own private office.
Shared spaces or coworking offer much the same – without the privacy, but still in an environment that promotes business and getting stuff done. Hot Desks, coworking, shared space, drop-in space are all descriptions of the similar models that offer a place to work (along with the associated amenities like wifi and coffee!) on either a short-term (sometimes as little as an hour) or longer-term basis.
Each of these options work for different people for different reasons but both provide something special for your home and family. Undivided attention, strict boundaries and structure.
