Today, for the first time in five days, I left my house. I had knee surgery last Thursday, so I’ve been working from home.
You’d think it would make no difference — after all, all I do anyway is type at a keyboard and talk on the phone — but I’ve been almost completely unproductive these last few days.
This morning (actually, about 15 minutes ago), my wife dropped my off at my office and I’m loving it. Something about this place just puts me in the groove instantly.
And that’s my point: You need to do whatever it takes to create a space that you love to work in. The benefit of doing so, even if it costs you a few dollars more a month, is better focus, better results, and, maybe most importantly, a great feeling about your work.
Gotta go. She’ll be back for me in four hours and I’m looking forward to enjoying every minute of “work” today!
