The summer is here, and with that comes MORE DISTRACTIONS!
The kids are home from school, the outdoors beckons, the sun doesn't disappear until super late and if you're lucky, the A/C in the summer reaches that second-floor office in your house.
But what doesn't disappear in the summer, contrary to your motivation to get it done, is work!
Well, for most of us anyway.
I am oh so familiar with the "home office" grind, where one's uniform is yoga pants and slippers. Unless you have a video conference. Then it's...well, still the yoga pants and slippers but with the addition of a fancier top.
I've been consulting for a l-o-n-g time and working home-based for as long as I can remember. For me it's not the distractions that get to me, but instead the lack of social connection.
When I'm working on a project I will go into my home office "cave" and seriously not come up for air for hours. Or until the dogs look at me pleadingly for their 10th walk of the day. What was I saying about no distractions again? ;)
At the Mountain Hub, I've heard a couple of people refer to the work they get done here as a "productive power hour" and that totally resonates.
Eliminate all distractions. Get yourself in a physical space that supports productive work and then PAY to be there.
That's a sure fire way to ensure to get the work done that you need to get done!
That said, I don't always need it "quiet enough to hear a pin drop", sometimes the background noise of other coworkers chatting or making coffee provides a productive backdrop to facilitate my focus.
But for client meetings, video conference calls or online exams we have offices available. Where you can book them online, pay in advance, come in and shut the door!
Our rooms are available to be reserved via our online booking system here, and you can also check the calendar to see what's available and when.
One thing to note is that each room has a varying price and members of the Mountain Hub get an additional 20% off those rates.
Let's go over the rooms we have available!
