If you’re anything like me, where you work has a massive impact on how you work.
I’m not the kind of person who can whip my laptop out on the corner of a crowded coffee table and get to work.
I work best when I’m surrounded by other focussed people.
If I can hear the clinking of mugs or vacuous office chatter, chances are I’m not doing the work I need to do.
Noise cancelling headphones help, of course. But more important than anything is that ambient pressure of being in a place where progress will be made, with or without you.
Doing is infectious. If you’re in a rut (as I recently have been), I can’t overstate how important it is to be surrounded by people who charge you up.
