This is an interesting question, because research is starting to show that it is not at the office anymore. For me, it’s getting to the point where I can’t even get work done at home- I have to go to Starbucks.
Why is this? For one, we condition ourselves to do certain things in certain places, and (at least in certain rooms in my apartment, I can’t bring myself to focus on anything in my living room.
Secondly, at the office it’s hard to get anything real done because of distractions. Whether it’s meetings, phone calls, drop in, we can’t focus on anything for any longer than 10 minutes at a time.
So where do you get work done? Honestly, it doesn’t matter where you get work done, what does matter is that you keep that place sacred.
