Some notes I have taken while reading Remote: Office Not Required:
- Routine is killing creativity
- Therefore you should change scenery often: go to a library, a cafe, to a friend, to a coworking space
- Regularly change your desk and therefore your perspective
- If company has a regular office, embed into company culture: change/rotate desks every week or month
The issue I see with myself is: I am a creature of habit. And so are other people. The result is that I usually always sit at the same place in my coworking office — and so are all others — although in theory I could change desks every day. Occasionally I am forced to sit somewhere else because my usual desk is already occupied, so this is actually a good thing :).
Dear Coworkers, in case you read this: please occupy “my” desk more often ;)
Note to myself: Whenever I stumble upon this post, change the desk.
