That was the theme of this improvised musical dance performance, shot in one take without any safety net, with Lou and Harold (thanks!!!). This improvisation was directed and performed before the quarantine, and the editing was done by Harald during the quarantine.
The initial idea was “Working the space” (a concept inspired by the concept of “Dancing the space” created by our choreographer friend Aurélie Delarue); it’s an artistic representation of the reality of shared workspaces (i.e. coworking spaces).
Following the encounter (https://youtu.be/sAgPjDRxZwk), the discovery, there comes a period of confrontation… The moment when the individual territories take form, along with the communal territories, spaces of sharing and collaboration, all of which are respected by the community.
That said, nobody imagined the reality that we are currently experiencing. The “coworking family” has become a reality for many of us! In just a few weeks, our ability to move and enjoy our physical territories has been greatly reduced. Our physical spaces of encounters and collaboration have disappeared. Numerous spaces are no longer accessible. Our borders are closed.
We continue to use our individual territories as well as a collaborative territory (at least virtually)…
New borders are also open… But are they defined? This video may illustrate, inadvertently, the manifestation of these borders between a personal space and a collective space.
How to be efficient and enjoy work during this quarantine period?
How to take pleasure through work?
“My schedule is coming undone piece by piece, because it’s what must come that comes, not what we write in the schedule; may we at least take charge, skillfully and energetically, of what legitimately comes.” Rainer Maria Rilke.
Some tried and true tips:
Maintain a regular schedule and create a rhythm that both works for you and will adapt to the context in which you operate
Plan your work so that you can ensure your attention will be focused on specific objectives. Make sure to plan for “free times”… Where you can indulge in your curiosity and impulses.
Note what helped you progress and succeed. At the end of the day, note any difficulties you encountered.
Staying in touch à Set aside time for yourself, your family, your friends, and your colleagues
à Establish “routines”
It’s an opportunity for your work to adapt to you and allow you to be even more productive.
You’ll have more time (less travel means more productivity) which you can benefit from by discovering, experiencing, and learning new things and/or spending quality times with your loved ones and/or practicing your favorite hobbies…
Don’t hesitate to try to link hobbies and work… Test what your hobbies can bring to your work and what your work can bring to your hobbies!
Year of the Rat… It’s an animal that you usually don’t like to come across at home or in the street at night. However, in Asia, the rat symbolizes abundance, prosperity, and luck. Reflecting upon that, this animal is present where there is an abundance of food, whether that be in cities close to busy restaurants or in fertile agricultural fields… Rats; an animal that keeps humanity’s excess in check?
Certain ski resorts opened last weekend thanks to the snowfall from recent weeks!
