  • Make the most of co-working | Re:think
    sure you speak directly and gently to the offending worker and try to find an arrangement that s mutually beneficial You might find that a diplomatic discussion reveals that you ve been displaying some annoying habits of your own Perhaps just as importantly learn when not to communicate Others need to concentrate just as much as you so don t pester them with a barrage of complaints and queries Instead write them down and save them for a more appropriate time or send them through e mail so people can respond when they re ready 4 Drop hints with props Placing a Do not disturb sign on the edge of your desk probably isn t going to be taken very seriously and it hardly gives off a friendly attitude Instead try some less confrontational approaches like putting on visible headphones when you need to stay focused They might help to cut out some of the background noise and they ll at least give you an excuse to pretend you can t hear anyone trying to get your attention Alternatively use some cunningly placed personal decorations to mark off your territory Gradual encroachment might seem like a petty issue but it can get frustrating when your colleague s disorganised clutter starts to invade your well kept workspace Just be sensible while a towering fortress of books and staplers might make people think carefully before bothering you it ll probably make them think carefully before inviting you to social events as well 5 Try and get a prime location If you ve any freedom in where you get to sit it s worth choosing the best spot Don t sit near the supply cupboard the printer or the stairs you ll just be bombarded with people asking you to fix a paper
