Avoid Burnout by Changing Your Work Environment
Posted by telecommatt on November 12, 2007
If you’re on the brink of being burned out creatively, the simplest solution could just be to change your environment in some way.
I couldn’t agree more! I’ve learned over time that sometimes I need to take myself someplace outside my cube in order to complete some creative task. I’ll brainstorm in the breakroom or walk around the parking lot to plan a meeting. If you train yourself to recognize when your environment changes (and make sure you have a pen and paper) you can switch your creative trigger anytime you’re away from your desk. A trip down the hall to the restroom can be just enough of a spark to jumpstart your thought process by the time you return to your desk.
