Guide to working in a coworking space
Working in a coworking space is much more than sharing a desk and an internet connection. It's a journey that will take you to an inspiring environment full of opportunities for professional and personal growth.
Whether you're an entrepreneur, a freelancer, a digital nomad or a professional looking for a change of scenery, this guide will help you make the most of your experience in a coworking space in Portugal.
1. Choosing the right location
The first step towards a productive experience in a coworking space is finding the perfect location. Portugal, and especially the city of Porto, offers a variety of coworking options. Before committing, visit different spaces, get to know the teams and members and assess whether the environment matches your personality and needs. Vertical Coworking is an example of a coworking space with an excellent location right in the centre of Porto.
2. Routine and timetables
Although we're talking about a coworking space, you can establish your own routines and schedules. Choose the location where you'll be working throughout the week, plan well and optimise your day to increase productivity. Determine the schedule that best suits your work in the coworking space and get in touch with the coworking manager to adjust your plan according to your needs. Developing routines is key to increasing productivity and optimising your use of the coworking space.
3. Defining Objectives
Working in a coworking space can be highly inspiring, but it can also be more prone to distractions with the diversity of people and activities taking place. It's therefore crucial to define the objectives for your work. Set priorities, create an action plan and stay focused on your tasks.
One of the biggest advantages of working in a coworking space is the opportunity to collaborate with professionals from different fields. Network with other members, take part in events and workshops and be open to new partnerships.
Networking in a coworking space can open doors to opportunities for you and your company. Vertical Coworking encourages contact between its members, encouraging its clients to get to know the community working in the same space.
Organisation is the key to success in a coworking space. Keep your workspace clean and organised, avoid accumulating objects and create an environment where you can concentrate.
Ask the coworking management team for help in organising yourself in the best possible way, taking advantage of what the coworking space has to offer. An organised mind is a productive mind!
Modern, well-equipped coworking spaces offer much more than a desk and a chair. Take advantage of facilities such as meeting rooms, breakout areas, meals and social events. Take strategic breaks to recharge your energy and creativity.
Although a coworking space is a working environment, remember to practise work-life balance. Set regular hours, avoid excessive overtime and enjoy the quality of life that Porto offers.
