Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About office basics
We should talk about office basics too, because when you have a bunch of work, usually it means that you should be aware of what your office is doing as well as how to set up a new office.
We’re talking about how to set up a new office.
One of the most important things to do when setting up a new office is to start by choosing a location. Many places are already on Google’s “best places to work in the world” list. You can also do some “backyard experiments” like we did: go to a place in your town, but this time try to work from home. It’s a good first step.
We went to a local college, and the area is really well-off. At one time, the college was a resort town, but there are some nice neighborhoods where the college is located. Its a good place to walk around and start figuring out a place to live.
We both also like to go to the mountains. This has been one of our recent resolutions. One of the great cities in the United States is the Rocky Mountains. We went there last weekend and decided to start looking at a place to live. We started with looking at places we like to go to, and then we thought, “Why not get a place from the people who work there?” This turned into a big decision. We like the college, but we like the mountains.
The Rocky Mountains are a major part of Colorado and the western part of Wyoming. They’re also one of the states in the USA. So we think we could live there and commute to Denver, or we could live in the mountains.
Thats a tough one. Our friends have made it clear that they dont want to move to Denver. In fact, they dont like us to call them. Theres a lot of people who dont like them to call them too and theyre not necessarily nice. So weve decided to live somewhere where they cant call us and theyre not so close by.
Office is where most of us spend most of our waking hours so getting used to working from home has been a challenge for us so far. In fact, it’s pretty hard to get used to even reading email from the comforts of our computers. But we think we’re getting the hang of it now.
I think it is because it is one of the few places where you can actually live. Denver has a lot of people who dont like you to call them and dont know you. You can literally just walk up to any door and say, ‘hey, please open up,’ and theyre bound to do it. If you were in Denver to work for a company you wouldnt be allowed to open your door to them, but even if you were, they wouldnt necessarily open it for you.
