The Next StepPosted: Sat 3 May, 2014 | |
This last week, I’ve been working from home – which is something I usually enjoy, but it’s not been overly assisted by feeling like rubbish, and somewhat demotivated.
Alongside that, for whatever reason, the cats have been super-demanding and really whingy, which has pissed me off more than it should.
All told, it’s meant I haven’t got as much done this week as I should’ve done, so it’s time to do things differently.
I’ve been aware of ‘co-working’ spaces/offices for a few years now, but never really felt the need to make use of them. I did look at them quite seriously when I had the possibility of the long-term ‘working from home’ gig earlier this year (which fell through) so I had some decent contacts.
As it turns out a couple of new ones have opened up quite near me in Milton Keynes. One in particular is ridiculously priced (as in ridiculously low) so I’m going to give that a go this coming week. Four days for £30 all in. I can live with that.
Of course, I still need to find out what the catch is. (If there is one) But if it works out and I like the place, it might be worth my while to make use of it for longer (depending on what other projects come up, naturally) Looking at the costs, it could cost me £80 for the whole of May, which is pretty insane…
We’ll see how the first week goes. But this could be the start of the next step up the ladder, having a place to work from for myself…
