Location, location, location. Sometimes a change of environment is all you need to pull yourself out of a rut and get things flowing. On his Study Hacks blog, Cal Newport suggests you grab your work and head somewhere that is particularly inspiring for you. He especially recommends places that aren’t in or around your normal office, and are novel or aesthetically arresting. Parks, botanical gardens, galleries and even monuments are great examples. Working in a place like that will get you away from your usual routine and give your mind a chance to be a little more free. And, as Newport, explains, they’re also a lot of fun.
