My Success Environment
Whatever you are trying to achieve you need to create the right atmosphere for success. What is that? Well it’s going to be different for everyone and it may well vary over time.
I got to thinking about that this morning. I’d had a week off and knew that I needed to get back to work with a bang. Had I stayed at home to work I know I would have been caught up in the drudge of chores around the house. I needed to get out and there were places I needed to go to get things done.
My choice was to treat myself to brunch at Frankie and Benny’s. I took my trusty notebook and got lots of thoughts out of my head and onto paper, planned out the rest of the day, had a good chat with one of the staff members there and left feeling positive and energised.
Working from home can be great. It’s useful to be home for deliveries, to be able to put the washing on etc. but it can also be lonely and very samey.
Today I was able to listen to great music, have my coffee topped up for me and know there were others around me without being interrupted. I had the added benefit of some fresh air and exercise (ok only a little bit) on the way there and back as well.
