Here at COWORKSURF we strive to create a fun and supportive community beyond what an average coliving or homestay would offer.
We see the value in genuine connections between the guests and since we always have such an awesome crowd, that never seems to be a problem here.
This past week we held a Mastermind Session thanks to the inspiration of one of CWS legend's, Pier.
We currently have a full house of creatives and professionals so it was a perfect meeting of the minds.
For those of you that don't know what a Mastermind Session is, let me break it down for you.
According to Forbes Magazine, "A mastermind group is designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others."
The evening started off with a Bintang run (local Bali beer) to Pepito's because statistics show that Bintangs help get the creative juices flowing.
(Don't quote me on that)
Then we started off by checking into the session which involved answering the following 3 questions.
How did you feel when you woke up today?
If there's one problem in the world you could solve today, what would it be?
How do you feel right now?
Just about everyone in the group answered "excited" for the last question, which is awesome!
We sat down at the table and received a sheet of paper and a pen.
In the meantime Pier drew this stunning diagram on the whiteboard.
He's quite the artist right?
He explained to us that each of us needs to choose one project or issue in our lives at the moment that we'd like to share and get advice about.
This diagram highlighted the fact that the topic could be in reference to your health, relationships, schedule, or job/finances.
Once we figured out what our topic of discussion would be, we had to answer a couple more questions.
This time we got a few minutes to ponder and then write them down.
Here are the questions....
What are you working on?
What is going well?
What is not going so well?
What would you like advice on?
Once we were done jotting our answers, we all took a swig of beer. Jk, just me ;)
The next step was to go around and share your answers.
Each person had a total of 6 minutes each which included the time to give your answers and receive feedback from the group.
Here's a look at my scribble....
(a bit messy I know, don't judge)
During my 6 minutes of fame, I was able to elaborate a bit more but I made sure to leave a good chunk of time for feedback from the group.
So by peeking at my answers, you can get an idea of what I'm working on and the advice I was seeking.
I was quite lucky because there were 3 extremely talented content creators/vloggers/social media savants in the group.
Their advice was so spot on and obviously straight from personal experience.
Not only did I walk away with great tips and goals to work on in the upcoming week but I also learned a lot about my CWS community.
The days to follow, I had roomies come up to me and ask how is the filming going?
Do you need help with this or that?
I think that when traveling and working remotely, it can be difficult to make genuine connections with others.
I've noticed that while staying here at CWS, that hasn't been an issue at all!
The general vibe of the staff and the guests is very inviting and gives you a great sense of belonging.
So, if you're looking for a home away from home where you can plan how you're going to take over the world.
Look no further. COWORKSURF is the bomb.com!
