Hi everyone!

Another week has passed and this one specially made me realize how much I love #SmartWorking.

If you’re in Dublin, you will definitely remember the chaotic rain on Wednesday. The weather was absolutely terrible, it was cold rainy and windy. Especially the rain was so heavy.  I was talking to Louise Wednesday morning and we’ve thought the same thing: #SmartWorking makes you love bad weather.

Most people have to commute on bad traffic, packed public transport and they get into work already stressed and soaked. And we all know that umbrellas are useless in Dublin as the wind and rain simply destroy them.

It just doesn’t make any sense to me! It makes me think: Why doesn’t everyone just #SmartWork? We should all have the option at least in those situations!

Another highlight of Abodoo week was the release of our campaign #MissionAgainstEmissions. I love how visionary the team is. We analysed Ireland’s carbon emissions targets for 2020 and the forecast is alarming. However, we solved a global climate change challenge with #SmartWorking! Isn’t it amazing?!

Hi everyone, I am back again, It was nice to hear from you all about your experiences about how you motivate and how you can save time from your schedule.
This week I have done a lot of work but I came across a very interesting book called Psycho-Cybernetics. It’s about a doctor who has done many plastic surgeries and how these surgeries affect humans mental behaviour. I have this reading habit from long back when I was in school.  I came across very interesting stories and theories. You won’t believe it but I like a book which focuses on conspiracies, international politics and self-help. When I talk to my friends and when they ask me about my timing because they always complain they want to read books and gain more knowledge like me they don’t have time.
We all can save our timing in many ways like SmartWorking, online shopping, task prioritising, planning, etc. I  wish for every person to start reading books because it not only gives you knowledge but also allows you to meet a new person who has written that book (how he/ she thinks, writing style, behaviour). Happy weekend reading!

Hi guys!

Another busy week here. At the moment my main task is prospecting co-working spaces in the UK. Even though we did a good part, there are around 12,000 hubs so it’s a lot to do! My main challenge is to finish at least 700! I feel really happy with the results and the team definitely keeps me motivated to achieve my goal.

Apart from work, I went to Holyhead in Wales during the week. We went on the ferry and it was my first time in the UK. I really enjoyed, it was a great experience and it was sure worth the visit!
