Thinking Outside of the Cave

Where are you most creative? Where do you do your best thinking?

Where do you spend your time? Where do you go to solve complex problems?

Are you desk- or office-bound? What about your team if you have one?

The idea for this post came to me originally when I was running on a treadmill. I forgot about it for a while but I kept remembering it when I was in the shower.

I seem to be at my most creative when walking outside or when taking a shower. I solve problems best in front of a big whiteboard. Yet I spend all day sat on my bum.

It’s easy, inoffensive and conventional to spend hours sat at a desk. That doesn’t make it right (or healthy, but that’s a different topic).

Today, my Path to Awesome is to be more aware and respectful of my own needs for appropriate creative space, and those of my team. How about you?
