I have found that my choice of places “to think” depends on what I need to focus on. Sometimes I need complete quiet and other times I need activity and noise to get me going.
A place with limited distractions is usually the most desirable location to practice your deep or process development thinking. Good locations outside the office or home are libraries, cafes, art museums and bookstores. Parks, gardens or nature spots are often excellent settings. Some individuals find that their thinking improves with some soothing music in the background. Others find themselves doing their most creative thinking while performing routine tasks such as weeding, emptying the dishwasher or working out.
Have you examined your thinking habits? Where do you do your most productive thinking?
