A change of environment stimulates creativity.
Even in the most awesome of offices we can fall into a routine, and a routine is the enemy of creativity.
Being surrounded by awesome team and officemates means being interrupted for water cooler chats and work questions. Being interrupted kills productivity. The coffee shop environment combines the benefit of anonymity with the dull buzz of exciting activity.
Community and meeting new people.
Meeting new people always provides me with new ideas, a different perspective at existing problems, or an interesting connection to a new person doing something awesome that inspires me.
Rotate coffee shops.
Avoid the stifling feeling of routine you were trying to avoid in the first place.
Coffee shop workers are awesome, and they’ll be awesome to you if you are a good customer. That hidden power plug will be revealed, an extra free refill will be given, an introduction will be made.
Don’t sit near the door or the register, if you can avoid it.
Come with a full charge.
