JAWBREAKING is a company made of freelancers. So the idea of personal work space is something we're familiar with. More importantly, the idea of a traveling creative is something we get. When it comes to creating a personal work space as a creative, it's necessary to be flexible - because you never know what you're doing , inspiring - so you can do your job, and portable - because you never know where you are. below are 5 tricks to get you there. Here's hoping your insta-flat-lay improves because of it.
STEP 1: PICK YOUR NECESSITIES
As a creative, your work space is like your studio. Recognize the things you use everyday all day (cell phone, laptop, notepad, sketch book, etc.) and make sure you have a check-in system so you always have them.
STEP 2: DECIDE ON YOUR SPACE NEEDS
Depending on what you do, you may need certain things in your work space. Musicians need silence but also the ability to play, artist need space to sketch or paint, etc. So list out your needs and then begin to seek out space where you can thrive. Here's a hint. If you're seamstress or a tuba player... don't go to Starbucks.
STEP 3: MAKE ROOM FOR INSPIRATIONS
No matter what you do or where you work, always keep a bit of inspiration around you. Quote from your idols. Letters from your lover. Creativity is a living part of our souls. We must feed it.
STEP 4: BE PREPARED
You know what you need. But what is needed by the things you need. Extra chargers? Credit Card? Travel-size selfie lighting? No matter what, always be prepared!
STEP 5: SCHEDULE
If you're going to be your own boss then you have to hold yourself accountable like a boss would. Take a lunch break, schedule meetings - even if they are just with yourself. Map out your day into categories and track your progress.
