Today’s audio diary is called Change Your Environment.

Recently, I just finished my book, my brand new book that’s coming out in September. And during that time of writing, it was a little bit stressful even though I love to write, but very often what I found myself doing was to change my environment to spur my creativity. So very often I would start out in my office and write for a couple of hours. And then I would literally take my laptop and I would go sit in my dining room or I would go sit out on the patio. I found that just by changing my environment, I was able to get back into it.

I know that many of you may not work from your home, but even if you’re in an office, you can do this. And I used to do this a lot when I was in an office. I could be sitting in my office and just needed that break, so I would take my laptop and go to the conference room. Or I will sit in somebody else’s workstation because I wanted to hear the background noise.

So it really works. Whenever you feel stuck, just go and change your environment and your productivity will soar.
