Time is moving quickly!
It was sometime this week when it suddenly hit me - I only have 2 more weeks left with Studio Graphene (very sad face!)
But luckily there was no time to get emotional, we’ve had a busy week.
First of all, we did some event preparation for the five events we are hosting at Huckletree Shoreditch. The first of these five took place this Wednesday and together with Nick Marshall from Twistar, we had some very interesting conversations around start-up ideation with our guests combined with delicious pastries from Dolcezza.
Originally, all of the events were planned to be breakfast meet ups, but apparently this does not seem to quite suit our start-up community (“who doesn't love a bit of a lie in?” or “in the mornings every minute of sleep counts!”) Fortunately, we are flexible and happy to switch coffee for beer and croissants for snacks! This means you can join us for the next events after your day at work and enjoy some razor-sharp start-up insights while sipping a cool, cool beer.
As I told you last week, I 'm also interviewing some of the awesome founder brains we know. Over the last few days I've transcribed, taken notes and finally pulled together the first blog post for the #FounderSecrets series. And who would be better to start with than our own founder Ritam? If you have a start-up idea, you've just started building your business or you are just plain curious you should definitely have a read.
With various tasks and meetings on the agenda this week, I was very thankful to get some advice from organising genius Christine, and this is something I would like to share with all of you, just in case you need some serious time-structuring in your work-life as well as your personal life.
Schedule your time for each activity you have planned for a day!
Get your diaries out (or buy one first if necessary) and start thinking about how many minutes or hours you might spend on certain tasks. I can ensure you, it makes your valuable time so much more productive and you get a lot more stuff done!
Also, it makes you think about what your priorities are at work and how you want to spend your free time.
Please don’t freak out if it doesn’t work out right from the beginning, it takes a while to get the twist of it and understand how much time you actually spend on certain things.
That's all for now!
