Wide desktop table, good lighting spot, fine air conditioning temperature, comfortable chair and excellent laptop, what else do you think you need to make the best working space?
As the Gig Economy continues to be adapted today especially for Millennials, setting up an ideal workspace for giggers should be top priority. Of course the workplace dictates your mood, with the wrong choice of wall art, space, and lighting your pursuit of productivity falls through the cracks. We should care about our place of work and the set up of our virtual office if we want to stay inspired, motivated, organised and productive especially when working at home.
So, where is the best workplace?
- Work from home – ever imagined waking after a good night’s sleep and not having to think about the stress that comes from commuting and traffic jams? If you wanted that type of set-up then working and earning money from the comfort of your home is the perfect fit to keep you motivated. All you need to do is find the best spot in your house where possible hindrances like poor internet connection, noise, limited power supply are unlikely to occur.
- Coworking Space – if you are into socialising while working then a Coworking Space is suitable for you. It is where people assembled in a neutral space to work independently on different projects, or in groups on the same projects. It’s different from a typical office work space because the people in a coworking environment generally aren’t working for the same company. You rent a seat, use the facilities, plug in and play.
- Coffee Shop – even some non-coffee lovers love the aroma of brewing coffee. The smell of coffee can also improve focus and productivity. Moreover, coffee shops have a lot of space,comfortable chairs and often they have free WiFi too. If you plan to work in coffee shops, you first need to make a purchase.
- Park – surrounded by something green and at the same time enjoying a breath of fresh air makes working in a park an enjoyable experience. It is free, and you can work as long as you want (Weather permitting). The only negatives are most parks don’t have WiFi and charger ports, and your work might get stolen by the pigeons. So don’t forget to bring portable WiFi and a powerbank.
- Local Library – if you want to work somewhere quiet and relaxing, then working in a local library is a good spot. You will also be surrounded by motivated people which can be a factor to increase your productivity and complete tasks, as long as you don’t get distracted by all the books.
