Reposted from the CoStructure blog.
Independents have it made, right? Being in charge of one’s own schedule is both a blessing and a curse– while one is no longer compelled to go to an office when the boss says so, one is also left with the responsibility to self-impose proper balance. Without an external force being applied to help structure one’s life, the balance is hard to achieve and harder to maintain.
CoStructure is an effort to achieve that balance by working towards it together. Learn more about the original idea on this wiki page: http://nwc.wikidot.com/costructure
Below are the first posts from our first set of participants: myself, Mark Burstiner, Greg Palmer, and Whitney Hess. Each has their own unique personal and professional background, but each shares a common need to improve the structure of their lives.
Check out our first posts, which we all wrote after our first meeting last week:
“Co-organizing CoStructure” by Mark Burstiner
“I Wish I Knew How to Quit You” by Whitney Hess
“Accountability Game” by Tony Bacigalupo
“Keeping CoStructure Challenging” by Greg Palmer
This is very much an experiment, one which doesn’t yet have all the ingredients and certainly isn’t fully baked. But as we explore how to help one another stay sane and get our stuff done, we thought we’d share and have you along for the ride so you can help us figure things out as we go.
How do you achieve better structure in your life?
