Office goals: Coffee. Walls. Dogs.

Remember when I told you about my new goal planner?

I’ve been diligently working away on my 30/60/90 goals, and one of my 30 day goals was to do an audit of all of our expenses – subscriptions, utilities, insurance, and general office stuff. It was helpful, and important, and, well – super duper disruptive. Because once I sat down and reviewed the numbers, I realized we were spending waaaaay too much money on our office space.

And just like that, one of my 90 day goals turned into a 30 day goal almost overnight, and – long story short – we’re moving!

We’re not just moving into another office, though – we’re moving into a co-working space. And not just any old co-working space – a dog-friendly co-working space! (They also have free coffee from one of our excellent local roasters, but that wasn’t one of the deciding factors. Not really. It didn’t hurt, though.)

The hardest part about the decision to move into a co-working facility was the dog thing. We briefly considered no dogs (which would have greatly expanded our options), but that just isn’t who we are. So we created a matrix, made some phone calls, toured some spaces, and narrowed it down to five possible choices (all of this in less than a week).

Because I know you all love a good chart almost as much as I do, I’m sharing the decision matrix with you. It really does help to visualize these big decisions.

Sure, we had to give up the handcrafted artisanal beer cooler, but we get to have our dogs with us.  In the end, that decision was easy.

What are your workspace must-haves? Send me your top 1 or 2 with permission to use your name; I’d love to share them with everyone on social media.

Yours in box-hell,
