26 Aug The World’s Most Imperfect Coworking Space
I’m a believer of practice, creation and forward moving. I believe that nothing is perfect, and it will never be. To me, attempting to create perfection means killing that project and frustrating myself in the process.
As entrepreneurs, we learn as we go and we get better every day at what we practice. I’m flawed as a human being, and I try to embrace my flaws and improve, but I won’t be able to create a perfect product or service simply because I’m not perfect. Instead, I try to create an environment that is humane, fun and progressive. And NOBO is proudly imperfect.
Some of the world’s greatest creators are imperfectionists. Filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Abbas Kiarostami, Clint Eastwood and many more. These acclaimed filmmakers all have at least one thing in common, and that’s finishing the movie in the best of their abilities at the time. Respecting their current instincts instead of swimming in the ocean of more possibilities.
There are also great perfectionist creators such as Steve Jobs, but I think that most of us would agree that (even though I’m a hardcore Apple fan) all Apple products are flawed. The iPhone is nowhere near a perfect product, it’s flawed, but it’s also very fun.
After years of creating and contributing to small projects, I learned that we’ll always have to learn. There’s always more. It’s okay to chase after perfection in the habit of going further and improving.
NOBO will always aim to provide the best possible experience and service for all members. And yet, we’ll always maintain our identity as the world’s most imperfect coworking space. That’s what makes us strive to always do better.
Our goal isn’t perfection, it’s service. We serve our members without letting the idea of perfection get in the way of constant and never-ending improvement.
I encourage you to join us on the journey of moving forward and trusting your instincts, too.
