When I was a little kid I had a favorite thinking space in my home. The space was a teeny, little hidden area behind where we would place our Christmas tree. To get to my secret thinking space I would crawl under a little storage hutch next to the tree and when the tree was decorated you couldn’t tell I was back there. Thankfully, my mom put the Christmas tree up early and I was able to enjoy my space for almost a full month.
I still like the idea of being “alone” in my thinking space. I don’t have a Christmas tree up all year long, but I do have a location and time where I get my best thinking done. My office is relatively empty
between 5am – 6:30am so I have a quiet place and time where I can get some of my best thinking and subsequently my best work done.
What about you? Where do you get your best work done? Do you have a time and place to go to where you feel comfortable and can do your best work? If not, I highly suggest you do some reflection on the subject and identify when you are at your best. Then make sure you recreate that time and experience as often as possible.
