Co-work

Tonight I meet friends for one of my twice-weekly co-work sessions at a coffee shop in Philadelphia. Our version of this type of session involves 15 minutes of socializing, an hour and a half of writing, and then a couple more minutes of chat.

It’s striking how much more likely I am to be productive on any given day, if I plan just this little bit of structure. Humans are social beings. The prospect of company and the commitment involved in sending an RSVP are just enough to make sure I’ll go, and once there, write.
