Nowadays, I like to work in a cafe as I feel more motivated when I’m surrounded by people although it can be noisy at time. But is ok as I can still focus. I’m pretty good at absorbing the noises and yet still able to concentrate on what I need to do. My brain is able to listen, observe, thank and write at the same time. Unbelievable right 😀?? Is true. I trained myself to multi-tasking when I was studying in university hence I’m able to focus even if there are noises as long as no one is talking to me. Haha.
I love the energy that comes from other people. Some are really good and some aren’t so good so have to learn to filter and absorb the good and discard the bad. When I look at people I couldn’t help but wonder what type of life they have. As I get older, the search for the meaning of life isn’t important anymore because majority of us will never be able to find the meaning of life. All I care is to live a life that I can have the freedom to do whatever I want, basically live life at my own terms and conditions. I control my own life and destiny – that’s the key!
I’m working on a few interesting projects currently, but still in negotiation stage hence still a long way to enjoy the fruits. Sometimes I do questions if I’m on the right direction in my career. It ain’t easy when I have to start over again (in a way) as my focus this time around is in different segments of the real estate market. Hence I have to learn a fair bit of things from ground zero, but I don’t mind as it is fun. Just that it will takes time before the results can be seen. So not only have to be patient, but also a deep pocket because I don’t have income coming in during this stage therefore have to dig into my own savings 😅😅. Anyway, I’m still very motivated as I have a strong feeling that I will hit jackpot soon. And 2018 will be a fabulous year.
Anyway, coming back to why I prefer to work in a cafe. I wrote this post on a Tuesday afternoon, but didn’t get to finish it as I was distracted by meetings and dinners with friends hence only able to finish it tonight.
And in the interim, I saw this article Why You Can Focus in a Coffee Shop but Not in Your Open Office appeared on my FB’s timeline and I have to share it. The coincident was too uncanny. But definitely an interesting article to read. Hope you enjoy it. I did.
I’m looking forward to moving to our new office in December 2017. Is a co-working space and I have a feeling I will be going to office more often as the place is more vibrant, has a cafe inside and comfortable lounge areas too. But the best is I will get to meet new people in co-working space environment. Excited 😀😀!! Viva 2018!! But in the meantime, cafe will still be where I’m going to get my work done when I don’t have meetings or appointments with clients. Hehe.
