What we're about

Work Better is a Meetup Group in Prague for English-speaking location-independent professionals--remote workers, freelancers, digital nomads, entrepreneurs, writers, creatives, and scholars--who want to work more effectively, successfully, and happily.

If you're looking for ways to work more efficiently; to collaborate with, support, and get support from others; to clarify and better achieve your goals; or to reignite your passion about work, then this group is for you.

----------

Events include:

Workshops, Trainings, & Lectures: When the opportunities arise, the group will host workshops, trainings, or lectures focused on improving the quality of one's work or work-life balance. If you have a great talk on this topic that you'd like to give, please let us know!

Mastermind Groups (https://www.google.cz/search?q=mastermind+groups): Recurring meetings with the same participants in a small group over an extended period to share knowledge, clarify goals, and hold each other accountable.

Jelly! (http://workatjelly.com) Jelly is a "work meetup" for people who can and often do work from anywhere with a desk and an internet connection but who would rather do it alongside others doing the same.

The "Group Work Meetups": This is a twice-a-week meetup for Locus Workspace Members and a monthly meetup open to the public. It's an intensely focused four hours of work in a group setting, using a group pomodoro technique (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomodoro_Technique) for those who want it.

The "Critique-Free Writing Meetup": A weekly meetup for writers of any kind (scholarly, journalism, non-fiction, fiction, etc.) who could benefit from a sacred time and a shared/social context to just write, write, write each week.

The Prague Writers Group (http://www.praguewritersgroup.com/): A bi-weekly meetup for creative writers to read and critique one another's work.

Your idea goes here! We're open to other ideas and often adding various events that might help all of us work better, so let us know if you have a good idea that you'd be willing to help organize!
