I saw this sentence but I don't know what it means. I've learned a lot about working on the go, at home, and in small spaces. What does "small spaces" mean here?

  • "Working in small spaces" is not a sentence. This question would fit better on English Language Learners, because it is about a phrase that is easily understood by native speakers. – Conrado Nov 18 at 13:51

  • It means working in a space that is small. – Hot Licks Nov 18 at 14:12
  • I searched for working in small spaces online. I got these results . They mostly seem to refer to working in a confined room or shed. They also seem to relate to safety. A small space is simply a small enclosed area in a building. – chasly - supports Monica Nov 18 at 14:18
  • This is easily googled, but you might find the synonym "confined spaces" to also be a useful search term. – Stuart F Nov 18 at 14:49

The context is someone who is working from many different locations due to travel. When you do this, you frequently encounter confined spaces (like in a car). Specifically the sentence references the physical adjustments you have to make to work effectively.

  • Uh, any reason why what I said was not helpful? – FeliniusRex Nov 18 at 22:23
