“What is coworking, you ask? Great question! In this post we’ll go through some of the key facts and definitions of coworking, as well as the many types of coworking spaces. We’ll give examples of some of the biggest global startups that began inside coworking spaces, opinions from the community, and a few unique niche coworking examples that you might not expect.

3rd Annual Business Walk

The City of PacificGrove’s Economic Development Commission, which is a volunteer group comprising of local business owners, residents and city and chamber officials, will be conducting our 3rd annual “Business Walk”  on Friday, March 18 2016 from 10am-noon. These volunteers will be visiting businesses in Pacific Grove’s five business districts – Forest Hill, Sunset Ave, Downtown, Central Avenue and the American Tin Cannery, to learn more about our local businesses and how we can help them strengthen and promote their business.  The volunteers will spend 5-10 minutes asking several questions including, (1) “How’s Business?” (2) “What do you like about doing business here?” and (3) “What can the City do to help you succeed?” Business owners and managers are encouraged to be at their business the morning of March 18th when the Business Walk teams are out. By taking the time to answer just a few questions about your business climate, you will be providing valuable information that business stakeholders in Pacific Grove can use in developing programs and services. Business walks have proven highly effective in strengthening local economies by retaining businesses in a community and creating an environment where they can grow. Companies with specific needs will be followed up and provided one-on-one assistance. After the Business Walk, a summary of the results will be posted to the

City of Pacific Grove’s website

. For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering for the Business Walk, please contact EDC Chair Jacquie Atchison at

How to find and do work you love | Scott Dinsmore

 

Published on Nov 29, 2012
Scott Dinsmore’s mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently. His research led to experiences with thousands of employees and entrepreneurs from 158 countries. Scott distilled the results down to his Passionate Work Framework – three surprisingly simple practices for finding and doing work you love, that all happen to be completely within our control. He makes his career tools available free to the public through his community at http://LiveYourLegend.net

Why One Assignee?

When nobody knows who’s doing what, and when someone doesn’t feel ultimately responsible for driving work forward, the work may not happen at all.Asana : Blog

 

…people who spend more time on projects that energize them and with people who energize them tend to be happier. However, what is interesting is that there is often a gap between where people say they want to spend their time and how they actually spend their time. For example, if you ask people to list the projects that energize (vs. deplete) them, and what people energize (vs. deplete them), and then monitor how they actually spend their time, you find a large percentage know what projects and people energize them, but do not in fact spend much time on those projects and with those people.We do some of our best thinking when we’re half asleep.
